  • Insider Reviews & Perspectives

    The Our Kids review of Canadian Contemporary School of Art

    our take

    Practicing artists engage children and adults in a range of genres and techniques, with an offering broader that a majority of afterschool and summer programs. Drawing and painting courses sit alongside sessions in animation, fashion, architecture, creative writing, and much else. Classes are warm and welcoming, with individual and online sessions also available. Skill development is key, though so is character and personal development, with a focus on building confidence, creative problem solving, and interpersonal skills. For beginners, programs rovide a great, lively introduction to new media. For the more advanced, sessions develop higher order skills and presentation, with mentorship from professional artists.

    Director's Message

    Nahal Bahrman, Founder and Director
    Educator, Manager, Curator, and Children's Book Illustration

    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    Welcome to the Canadian Contemporary School of Art (CSSA)!

    We started in 2016, with one goal in mind: nurturing the artist in every child. At CCSA, we believe in using creativity as an educational tool to encourage a child’s natural ability to be curious when engaging with the world. This type of experiential learning creates opportunities for self-expression, calculated risk-taking, and open-minded inquiry that can help children be more independent, resourceful, and confident when facing any challenge.

    We offer a variety of art programming from preschoolers to teenagers specifically designed to encourage the early development of creative skillsets they can apply in their everyday life. Imagine the joy experience in learning more about their creative selves, helping them build the foundations for the well-rounded adults they will grow up to be.

    From our Art for Tots program, to our after-school visual arts program, and our Portfolio Preparation classes for young adults, we focus on developing art-making as a lifelong hobby that encourages perseverance, discipline, and innovation.

    We are located at the heart of Toronto’s Leaside neighbourhood, in a bright and open 3,750 square foot space.

    If you would like to know more about our programs and camps, please visit our website at www.ccsa.art, or email us at [email protected]

    Come and help plant the seeds of lifelong creativity in your child’s life!

     

    Sincerely,

    Nahal Bahrman

     

    Nahal is a mother, entrepreneur, educator, manager, curator and children’s book illustrator. With a Master’s degree of Illustration and her artistic experience, she now directs the Canadian Contemporary School of Art and the Canadian Children’s Art Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports and celebrates children's creativity in Canada.
