Art City is a not-for-profit community art studio dedicated to providing people of all ages with innovative and professional art programming, free of charge. Art City’s primary goal is to provide space and tools for anyone who wishes to express themselves creatively.
Art City is located on Treaty 1 territory and the land on which we gather is the traditional territory of Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene Peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation.
In accordance with Public Health Guidelines, we are not offering in-person programming until further notice.
However, we have reinvented our offerings into these three formats:
Art City Curbside
Art City Virtual
- Art City Outreach
Do you need Art Supplies? Ideas for Art Projects? We offer 20+ different art kits, each containing the materials and the instructions for you to complete a project.Free of charge for everyone! For all ages!
