Our online classes can be taken from anywhere in the world! 

You do not need to be a University of Saskatchewan student to take our classes, and they are open to anyone aged 16+ unless they are listed as adults and youth in which case they are for 12+. 

Welcome to the University of Saskatchewan's Community Arts and Artisanship Program. We offer non-degree art classes and workshops in drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, mixed media, metalwork, glass art, textiles, and more. Whether you are a complete beginner or a seasoned artist looking to learn new skills, we have a range of classes offered by experienced artists who enjoy teaching and supporting students in their creative journeys. You can register online or by calling 306-966-5539 or 306-966-4355.

In order to continue to protect our community, our classes will be offered online unless otherwise indicated. Although the experience is a bit different, there are benefits such as not having to carry all your supplies and artwork to campus, and being able to attend from wherever you live.

  • Classes are delivered live/synchronously through short lectures, demonstrations, time to work on projects, instructor feedback, and class sharing.
  • Classes are not recorded.
  • Enrolment is limited to keep class sizes small. 
  • You will receive the online meeting information the day before the start of class.
  • We take registrations up to the second class if the class is not full.

So many of us appreciate the joy and benefits of doing art in community. We can still be together. If you are doing art at home and missing your art friends, come join us and share your creations. Let's finish up some class projects, and explore new media, ideas, or anything at all that's artistic and creative. Everyone is welcome, all Community Arts students and instructors, and also anyone in the broader community, so feel free to invite others!
