Leighton Art Centre, located just 20 minutes from SW Calgary in the scenic foothills (and boasting a spectacular Rocky Mountain view), has been a hub for Alberta artists and art enthusiasts for over 45 years.
The centre's Spring 2020 workshop line-up, featuring a wide array of art and nature experiences, has now been announced... and is still being added to! From painting to felting, broom making to night sky watching, photography to printmaking and beyond, there really is something here to appeal to everyone.
Nature experiences are generally open to families with children and most of the art classes accept teens as well as adults. Even better, Leighton Art Centre members receive 10% off all workshops (and summer camps). Memberships cost $50/year and provide opportunities to sell your art through the centre's Gallery Shop, exhibitions and art sales.
