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.

Plein AiRT

We are excited to announce the art school will be offering free outdoor workshops during the summer.

They will be held around Bâtiment 7.

Voyage

The Pointe Saint Charles Art school Art Hive will be hosting “Community build days” for Tableau D’Hôte’s “ Voyage” project. Voyage is a performative, interactive and multidisciplinary event that will unfold over eight kilometers along the Lachine Canal in the Sud-Ouest. Audiences will live this unique experience from the canal and will thus be able to witness dozens of short 15-30 second vignettes as they leisurely sail down the Canal. These hives are eco-art related so we will be  making puppets, masks and flags inspired by the natural and urban environment and ecosystems of the canal. No previous experience required, just an interest in helping out and having fun 🙂

Please sign up via the Voyage sign up sheet if possible so you can receive most up to date information.

Dates are:
June 5th 12-5pm @B7, Pointe St Charles Art School. (1900 Le Ber)
June 10th 2-7pm (in collaboration with the Ruche d’art Alexandra PSC) at B7 (1900 Le Ber) and at Ruche d’art Alexandra (210 Charon)
June 11th 12-5pm @B7, Pointe St Charles Art School. (1900 Le Ber)
