At Dundas Valley School of Art, we believe art plays a vital role in changing how we think about the world. By creating art, we connect with our senses through investigation, conversation and exploration. Dundas Valley School of Art is a thriving hub for artists and art instruction. Our courses, lectures and workshops bring together artists of all ages and from all walks of life. Our studios provide an exciting environment in which to learn from the masters and from each other.
