Whether you are looking for music lessons, group music classes, dance classes, art classes, theatre classes or creative writing classes, Place des Arts aims to inspire the artist in everyone!
Place des Arts’ visual art department features a vast array of art programs in a variety of art media. Our highly skilled teachers offer oil painting classes, acrylic painting classes, drawing classes, mixed-media classes and even cartooning and animation classes.
Place des Arts is one of the few facilities in the Lower Mainland equipped with a mid-fire stoneware facility consisting of three spaces: the manufacturing area, the glazing area and the kiln room. Our exceptional teachers offer pottery classes to youth and adults each session, and during our Spring Break and Summer Camps, the studio is filled with children and youth eager to get their hands in the mud.
The centre also boasts a well-equipped fibre arts studio featuring a variety of table and floor looms, and spinning wheels. It is available to registered students for practice sessions free of charge. Spinning & dyeing and weaving classes fill the studio during Place des Arts’ fall, winter and spring sessions. Weaving students may take home small table looms for practice between classes.
If it’s music you’re looking for, Place des Arts has over 35 highly qualified and reputable teachers available for private music lessons in a multitude of instruments. Group guitar, piano and fiddle classes, music theory classes and music classes for young children are also available. A number of music ensembles teach students how to play well with others and offer performance opportunities.
Place des Arts also offers dance classes for children, teens and adults in ballet, jazz, hip hop, song & dance, contemporary, tap and acro. The centre’s lively theatre arts department offers classes for children and teens from beginner to performance level in stage and on-camera acting and musical theatre.
