Community Workshops & Classes

Our Workshops & Classes listings are a great way to find creative courses offered throughout British Columbia. The database is a FREE service for art teachers and organizations offering classes. Instructors post their own classes and potential students can search these listings by date, location, and/or subject.

Are you an Arts Instructor? If you offer visual arts community classes or workshops, please create an Art News Profile and then upgrade it to an Instructor Profile. You can add information about your qualifications and upload sample images of your work to help potential students see what you have to offer.
