Art helps people reach a wide audience without shouting from the top of radio towers, provocatively dancing behind a local TV field reporter, or tying speech bubbles to migrating birds. Express yourself with today’s Groupon to Framing Dames in Scarborough. Choose between the following options:

Equipped with a degree in the Fine Arts, Framing Dames owner Catherine Hawthorn helms a team of experienced instructors who impart their aesthetic savvy upon students of all ages and abilities via hands-on classes and workshops. Staffers patiently guide pupils through sessions such as Life Drawing and the Acrylic Painting Workshop for Adults, expounding upon the techniques and skills necessary to forge custom creations worthy of hanging on any art museum’s refrigerator. Hone snipping and pasting prowess during an Assemblage and Collage class, or nurture future Rodins with a children’s sculpture class. While some classes include supplies, artisans may need to purchase equipment or bring their own portable muses to class.
Though not included with today’s Groupon, visitors to the shop can scan a gallery of local artwork for wall-worthy pieces. Framing Dames has also raised funds for charities such as Doctors Without Borders.
Touting a degree in Art Workshops, Framing Dames owner Catherine Hawthorn helms art classes and assists her customers in tastefully preserving their work and memorabilia with custom framing. Adults and kids aged 6–13 can learn how to draw, paint, and sculpt in a variety of classes and workshops, then hone their creative skills at home through a wide selection of art supplies available for purchase. On the framing side of the shop, the crew encloses two-dimensional masterpieces or napkins commemorating a first taste of nachos in acid-free materials designed for museum-quality protection. Three-dimensional objects, such as jerseys, can also be preserved by framing with matte and glass. In support of her community and charities, Catherine keeps a gallery dedicated to local artists and works to raise funds for organizations such as Northern Arts Initiative supplying much needed art supplies to Isolated Northern First Nations Communities. She shows off her skills and shares her vast knowledge in her webinar series.
