About Our Facility

The Calgary School of Art is 7,000 square feet of beautiful classroom facilities, private artists’ studios and a huge selection of art supplies.

We offer ongoing art classes and workshops in oil, acrylic, watercolor, mixed media and drawing, from art instructors that are passionate about teaching. We are also passionate about our environment and the health and comfort of our students. Our classrooms are lit with Full Spectrum Natural fluorescents that are energy efficient and offer the best possible light for painting.

We are committed to providing a solvent-free environment with no petroleum based thinners or cleaners allowed. Glazing mediums for our oil classes will be strictly monitored, and allowed only in closed containers.

Our friendly, knowledgeable staff are, well, very friendly and very knowledgeable!

Our  painting studios are beautifully equipped with the best furniture and fixtures. Our drawing studio is equipped with versatile directional lighting for multiple lighting effects which create the perfect environment for live model drawing and painting classes.

Calgary School of Art is located within Cactus Art Supplies in Southeast Calgary. Offering a full range of quality art supplies at great prices, students can obtain all their art supplies and get quality instruction, all under one roof.

We look forward to seeing you there!
