Artist Workshops

Whether you want to hone your skills in a medium you already love, or try something completely new, art workshops at Leighton Art Centre are fun, creative and inspiring! Workshops are held in our historic education centre, unless otherwise noted, and often take advantage of our 80 beautiful acres, for inspiration.

This page lists all upcoming art workshops. You might also be interested in Nature Programs or Family Friendly Programs!

Please note: workshops take place less frequently during the winter months.
