About Us

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.

Spring 2021 Classes

Spring classes will run for 10 weeks, from April 12 until June 21 unless otherwise indicated. In line with the University of Saskatchewan's guidelines to protect our community, our classes will all be offered online. 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 anywhere in the world!

  • 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 8 students 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. 
  • Classes are for students aged 16+ unless they are listed as adults + youth in which case they are for 12+.

You can't use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have. -Maya Angelou

Facebook Art Group


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!


Supply lists are found on the class pages. Please note that we reserve the right to cancel classes due to low enrolment, so please keep all your receipts in case you need to return items.
