WAG Studio

WAG Studio is one of Canada's oldest gallery-run art-making programs. Our philosophy is rooted in the belief that art education is a vital component in the personal development of individuals at any age. Our programs are taught by practicing artists who share their enthusiasm, insight, and highly developed skills. Check out current classes and register here.

We are committed to providing excellence in art instruction by offering:

  • A variety of classes for children, teens, and adults
  • Tours and discussions of current WAG exhibitions
  • Experienced artist instructors
  • Five well-lit studio spaces 
  • Spring, summer, fall, and winter class sessions


History: Saturday Morning Art Classes began in 1937 and are still conducted each fall and winter in our studios, sponsored by Winnipeg School Division. In 1972 and 1973, summer programs were organized for the general public. By 1995, WAG Studio had grown so much that we moved out of the WAG lower level and into our new home in two adjacent buildings, allowing us to expand our offerings and develop one of Canada’s largest and most vibrant studio art programs.
