We apologize, at this time we are not offering adult programming.

Creative Flow (adults)

This 6 week workshop explores how art resembles life. As any artist approaches a blank page or a piece of canvas, it’s a brave step, we never really know how it’s going to turn out. We have an idea of what we want but as we begin to create, we start to see things emerge and go with what’s working.

Just as in life, any new adventure or journey comes with a blank page, allowing you to write the story. It’s a brave step, and you can never really be prepared or guess what’s all going to happen.

What are the similarities between the creative process and life? We’re exploring our own creativity and the meaning of life. Led by Laura Mowbray (Yoga Instructor) and Vanessa De Groot.




Birthday Parties

You’re never too old to celebrate!

**We are not offering birthday party for the months of June-September***

Dive into the celebration of creativity with our customized birthday parties, perfect for making your child’s special day unforgettable. Each party is a unique adventure into art, tailored to the birthday child’s interests and age group, ensuring a memorable experience filled with fun, laughter, and artistic exploration.

No muss, no fuss—leave it up to us! Saturday’s 11-1pm

1 hour of painting and guided facilitation + 1 hour of party time in our lounge – must be supervised by parents. (Set up for party can be done during the painting portion of the activity). Bring cake, candles, food, or games if you’d like, and you may use the studio for up to an hour after to celebrate.

Choose from either two different painting activities:

  • Step by step painting – We take suggestions based on the birthday child’s interest – based on that we’ll come up with a painting and guide them through the process.
  • Pour and paint – We’re about to get messy! Each child can customize their 12×12″ painting by choosing their own colours – add in glitter, silicone and fire and BOOM! The masterpiece is created. Dress for the mess as paint won’t come out of clothing. **Paintings take 3 days to dry at the studio, pick up for paintings will have to be arranged for a following day.


Private Parties

For those seeking a more intimate or personalized art experience, our private paint nights are the perfect solution. Whether it’s a girls’ night out, a family gathering, celebrating a birthday, or a team-building event, we create a relaxed, supportive environment where you can unwind, bond, and express yourself on canvas.

Party Options: We have a few options below, but if you have something specific in mine we’re always happy to customize a package that is suited just for you.

School Workshops

Painting Workshop (Grade 2+)

Step by step instruction for students to learn techniques to create their own painting. In addition to learning about composition, colour mixing and painting techniques – emphasis will be on how art resembles life, students learn:

  • There’s many ups and downs so we must be kind to ourselves – we aren’t Picassos
  • They’ll all be the same but different, and that’s great! Embrace you – your painting is yours you can add whatever you wish
  • No such thing as mistakes. They can always be fixed but often those mistakes become the best part


Doodle Workshop (Grade 4+)

Doodling is a form of art that is non-representational and unplanned, the intention is to focus on each stroke as you make it. Letting go of expectation and self-criticism, and fear of failure. There is no right way or wrong way to do zentangle, its done in pen to embrace “mistakes” as in art mistakes are often the best part. In life, we’re given no erasers, we just make do. This meditative state of drawing engages students in the present moment, fully engaged in what they are doing. This is a great tool to utilize when feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or angry. Students will learn simple patterns that can be repeated in many designs, and will be given time to create their own drawings.


Self Talk: Inner Critic vs. Inner Cheerleader (Grade 7 – 12)

This workshop helps teens identify the impact of our thoughts and how it can impact our feelings and behaviours. It does so by helping teens develop an awareness of when thoughts and self-talk may be having a negative or irrational influence on the way they act. Students will be invited to participate in a discussion about self-talk – what is self talk, how does it sound, and what are some ways which we may talk to ourselves. Students will create their own character that represents their inner critic, discussion will focus on emphasizing that we all have an internal dialogue, despite not always being able to recognize it as such. Goals: develop an awareness of how thoughts affect our feelings and behaviours. Emphasis will also focus on self-compassion, how to treat ourselves and talk to ourselves when faced with a difficult situation.
