Art Jam / Open Studio


Markham, Ontario

Winged Canvas, 91 Anderson Avenue, #12

Working in a group of creative people is both inspiring and shown to be highly motivational. The goal of Art Jams are to work openly among other creatives and bounce ideas and inspiration off each other. Unlike other workshops, Art Jams are drop-in art sessions with no step-by-step instruction. However, students may ask for creative direction and feedback from the instructor, who may also be working among you. Workspace is divided into drawing and painting stations. You may finish artwork in progress, or come in with a new idea to pursue. So come get your creative juices flowing!
