We will finish our Winter Term, though at this time we are unsure of the final make-up dates. Please check in with this page as our situation gets better. We are sorry that we are all put in this situation and we hope that you understand we are trying our best to make decisions in an ever changing environment.

If you are scheduled in a workshop in the meantime - please wait to see if we can reschedule a date once we reopen. We will do our best to reschedule our events.

As of now, Spring Open House on April 5th is cancelled.

Spring Term at the moment is on hold. We are unsure when this will start and how long it will run. We will try our best to fit it in before summer camps. We will adjust payments for spring accordingly.

Our Annual Art Auction will be rescheduled. Stay tuned for an announcement once we reopen.

Stay Safe.

Updated March 14th

Due to the recent events surrounding the spread of COVID-19 at home and abroad, and following decision was made by The Art School of Peterborough’s Board of Directors to cancel March Break Camps, and delay the last weeks of our Winter Term.

As of March 16th, the Art School will cancel all workshops and classes for three weeks. This decision was a difficult one but one that will help unit our community and it's fight against this situation. You will still be able to contact the school during office hours and we can be reached via email.

To avoid constant communication via email and phone, please check out this page and our Facebook page, as this will be a current up to date way to access the changing information as we navigate into the future weeks ahead.

Workshops will be cancelled March 16th to April 5th. These include the following: Hand-built Easter Bunnies, Acrylic Pouring: Funnel Pour, Scratchboard Flying Pigs, Woodburning: Cheese Plate, Stylized Portraits, Fused Glass: Floral Shadow box, Illustrative landscape Design for Teens, Pottery: Easter Bunnies for Youth. We ask that you give us some time to find a rescheduled time in the near future.

Please see below the Tentative Rescheduling for final classes of our Winter Term. At the moment our Spring Term Open House will run as scheduled April 5th, 12-3 pm with our Spring Classes now starting April 20th for 8 weeks.

Please rest assured that we are doing a deep disinfection of the entire building and will continue to increase our cleaning frequency once we re-open. As a reminder, we ask that all students who have travelled please self-quarantine for 14 days once you have returned home before returning to the school.

Please be advised that The Art School has also delayed their Annual Art Auction until a later date. A new date will be announced in the near future.

As this situation continues to unfold we will respond accordingly. We ask that you be patient with us as we are all trying to navigate through this.
We hope that our united efforts will help our Staff, students and the community get through this difficult time.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we move forward.
