Open Studio NightsJoin us for our FREE Open Studio Nights on Wednesdays from 6 -9 p.m. until May 27. This informal studio time is an opportunity for artists to come together and work on their individual projects, share ideas, get feedback, or collaborate. Artists should bring whatever materials they need for their work. We'll provide the studio, easels, water containers, music (or bring your iPod) and a great relaxing atmosphere. Don't forget to bring some snacks and coffee/tea (there is a Keurig in the studio). There's no need to register, just show up! And you don't have to commit to every Wednesday night, come when you want! For further information, contact Gail Hodder at email@example.com

Birthday PartiesIf your child is having a birthday party and loves ART, book the Schurman Family Studio to celebrate their special day!!
The Schurman Family Studio is a large space that is fully equipped to teach groups of children; and is an excellent location for your young art-enthusiast's birthday party!
Every party includes a 15-minute tour of an art exhibit in the Gallery followed by 45 minutes of instruction of an art activity. Parents and kids can choose from the following three options:
- watercolour painting
- drawing with pastels
- introduction to collage
After the hour long art activity, parents have a second hour in the studio to accommodate their own birthday party traditions. Those traditions may include snacks, drinks, birthday cake, a piñata, opening of presents, games, loot bags, etc.
Birthday parties usually take place on Sundays between 2-4 p.m.
The birthday child attends for free! A minimum of 6 additional children at $10.00 per child is required. Payment can be made via cheque or cash at the beginning or end of the birthday party. Cheques should be made payable to "Confederation Centre of the Arts."
In addition to the art activity, instruction and materials, the Centre will provide a fruit tray; a birthday table with tablecloth; napkins; paper plates; and forks. Assistance with clean-up will be provided. We can also send you a map of the Schurman Family Studio which can be included in your child's birthday invitations.
The kids! Parents should also provide the birthday cake, drinks and additional snacks (if desired). Other popular provisions may be decorations such as themed paper plates and napkins, balloons, party favours or loot bags.
