Our community art engagement programming is focused on our mission to make art accessible. We want our school to be diverse and inclusive so we’ve developed opportunities for arts engagement which encourage broad participation. The free, by donation, and sliding scale spots in our workshops, drop-in and longer format classes make it easy for people to try something for the first time or develop a lasting connection.

Here are some of the community programs we have been offering.

outdoor club d’art
This group gathers outdoors throughout the fall and winter to sketch, take photos and make notes to work on at home. We will be meeting at different places in and around Pointe-Saint-Charles. This is a time honoured practice among artists who brave all kinds of weather to bring us exciting depictions of outdoor life all year round.

Wednesdays, 12:30 – 1:30 pm

To join please send an email to and / or join our outdoor club d’art on Facebook.

Enjoy the video of our publication of sketches, drawings and paintings created by the outdoor club d’art between 2020-2023. If you’d like a copy, send us an e-mail.
