Spring Courses

As a precaution to restricting the spread of COVID-19, NSCAD has made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel our in-person Spring classes. However, we are offering a special edition of online classes for ages 16+!


Summer Camps

In light of what safety measures will be needed to run camps safely, we’ve made the unfortunate decision to cancel in-person summer camps this year. This is not a decision we want, nor take lightly, but in the interest of public safety, we feel this is the best course of action.
We are currently in development of alternative youth art-making endeavours, stay tuned for more news!
