To Artistic Way’s team of experienced instructors, a community touched by art becomes a stronger, healthier community. Keeping this philosophy in mind, the staff seeks to unleash the shrink-zapped Monets living in artists of all ages, experience levels, and backgrounds via a host of programs that encourage self-expression. Professional artists helm art classes for kids and adults alike, and an ever-changing roster of workshops includes BYOB ladies’ nights and opportunities for intensive independent study. Creative endeavours such as mosaic making and sculpture ensure that Artistic Way’s summer and winter camps capture youngsters’ imaginations, preventing boredom or bouts of nostalgic pencil sharpening. While specializing in painting and drawing, Artistic Way also offers make-your-own jewellery, ceramics, and glass sessions, and a school of animation combines art and entertainment.
