Develop your craft.

We will be holding professional development workshops for emerging and established artists to develop their craft.

The workshops, led by award-winning professionals in their field, are an initiative we put forward to fundraise for ARTISTA, our free youth mentorship program for women. It is our goal to raise $3,750 with the Atelier workshops. All of this money will go towards ensuring that 15 young women can have free access to meaningful arts mentorship.

Day-long workshops are $75 for which you will be issued a $50 tax receipt for your workshop fee.
Note: The Art of Direction Master Class with Micheline Chevrier is an intensive 3-day workshop for $200 with a $150 tax receipt.
