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 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.
