The Pointe-Saint-Charles Art School offers a variety of classes for students of all levels and walks of life.

Our Approach

The Pointe-Saint-Charles Children’s Art Programme teaches children a variety of art techniques and encourages their creative self-expression through high calibre art instruction. Competent, qualified and talented art teachers offer your children a wonderful opportunity to learn and enjoy art in the beautiful studios and welcoming atmosphere of the Pointe-Saint-Charles Art School.

The discovery and invention that happen when children make art help them develop sensitivity and self-discipline. Confidence, competence and communication evolve together through creative self-expression on the one hand and the development of art skills on the other.

Let our skilled and imaginative instructors inspire your children and offer them the opportunity to benefit from the joys of art making!

Developing a Portfolio for University or CEGEP Fine Arts Programs 

Instructor: Dave LeRue

10 Weeks of classes. Sunday, 1:00 – 5:00.

Dates: November 20 – December 11, with a holiday break, restarting January 8 – February 12. Inclement weather make-up day: February 19.

Developing a portfolio for post-secondary education can be a challenging endeavour, and this studio-based course is designed to demystify the application process and to help you develop a 15-20-image portfolio that demonstrates your artistic, conceptual and technical abilities. Students will develop their drawing, painting, sculptural and printmaking abilities through weekly class exercises and homework assignments. In collaboration with the instructor, students will also develop an individual project tailored to your desired program. We will cover how to document work and how to write an admission letter. A small class size means students will have lots of one-on-one time with the instructor, who will offer personalized feedback during and outside of class. This course is open to all who want to improve their artistic ability but is specifically tailored for those applying to studio arts programs that ask for a portfolio. Success in this class requires a minimum of 4 hours per week on projects outside of class time.

Please share the portfolio requirements of the school(s) and department(s) you wish to apply to when you register, including links to the website if available.

Course will be taught in English, but translations of specific techniques and discussions can be offered.

Cost: $390 + $40 materials fee. In-class materials are provided, but students may have to purchase materials for personal projects as needed.

Maximum of 12 registrants. Registration will close when the class is full.
