  • Insider Reviews & Perspectives

    The Our Kids review of Ottawa School of Art

    our take

    The Ottawa School of Art began as a civic association in 1879 intending to help promote the fine arts. One of the first orders of business was to promote the creation of the National Gallery of Canada, which it successfully did. While it doesn’t share the stature of the National Gallery—and, indeed, no arts organization in the country does—the School has been an important part of the life of the city throughout its long life. The spaces and resources are varied, as are the programs on offer, from residencies, to credit courses, to community engagement. The children’s programs seek to inspire interest in the arts, and to appeal to the various curiosities that children have, from how things are created, to the people do who the creating. Sessions range from drawing and printmaking to cartooning, animation, and fashion design. Children who enroll are presented a unique opportunity to take part in the life of a premiere arts institution and to meet the artists who, in turn, give it life. That experience alone can be transformative. Sessions are fun, accessible, and well administered.

    Summer Camps 2019 at OSA


    Summer at the Ottawa School of Art is going to be a very busy and exciting term! The OSA offers a full slate of classes at both our ByWard Market and Orleans Campuses.


    During the summertime, the focus of our programs in Orleans and downtown will be our summer art camps for children and youth. For younger children these classes offer rich experiences in drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture presented through the themes the classes are built around. Classes for older children and youth are more focused on specific media or disciplines such as animation, cartooning and fashion design, to name a few. The programs at both campuses are a great opportunity for children and youth, ages 6 to 15, to take part in an enriching and stimulating visual arts experience.


    I encourage you to sign up for a camp or two this summer. It’s a great time of year to renew your creative energies – either in the ByWard Market or in Orleans. Enjoy the term!
