Visual Arts Programs for preschoolers and children at the Shadbolt will not only provide exposure to colour interaction and textures but can also be the start of a path to formalized training. There are also classes for families to explore their artistic side together.

Teens and adults will find that relaxed classes taught by professional artists are a perfect way to discover artistic personality whether participating at a beginner or experienced level.
