A COMMITMENT TO ART AND ART MAKERS OUR PROGRAMS AND INSTRUCTORS For over 80 years, WAG Studio has built a strong reputation for providing excellence in art instruction for children, teens, and adults. Classes incorporate current exhibitions with special tours, fostering a connection between the art on view in the galleries and the art created in the classrooms.

All of our instructors have degrees and/or diplomas from universities or art colleges and many have master’s degrees and additional certification in education. While most work in private studios, instructors also bring experience as actors, administrators, art therapists, designers, and members of artist-run centres. For more information about our instructors, visit wag.ca/studio

OUR INTERIM LOCATION All art classes are currently offered on the Gallery’s lower level. Public access is down the ramp of the WAG building on Colony St. This interim location is in place as the Gallery works to develop the WAG Inuit Art Centre–a new building that will be connected to the Gallery on all levels. The Centre will expand art education with larger and more versatile spaces, providing a breathtaking new home for art classes, as well as the WAG’s celebrated collection of contemporary Inuit art and related programs.

If you have questions, please contact: Rachel Baerg Head of Education art-educator@wag.ca Diane Lafournaise Manager of WAG Studio studioprograms@wag.ca Learn more about the WAG Inuit Art Centre at inuit.wag.ca
