As the weather turns cooler and students go back to school, we’re thinking about YOUR creative fall! A class at the Steinbach Arts Council is the perfect way to try something new or return to an old favorite. We are offering over 60 amazing programs this fall, covering a variety of areas – there’s sure to be something for everyone!
Try almost any of our classes – the first session is FREE! Can’t decide which class would be right for you? Give us a call at 204.346.1077 to chat about program opportunities.
Looking for something traditionally creative? Try a VISUAL ARTS class! Kids, Teens, and Adults alike will enjoy opportunities to draw, paint, sculpt, and more! Mixed Art for Teens is an exploration of drawing and painting where the students get to choose the direction the class takes! Introduction to the Pottery Wheel is the perfect class for those new to pottery – learn some hand building techniques and get your start with wheel throwing! Learn concepts in our Digital Photography class, and take them out into the community to practice during the week – then help grow your experience by photographing SAC events!
Our new Aboriginal Arts program offerings add new art forms and stories to our programming. Miss Donna is back to teach how to make your own Moccasins, Mukluks, Gauntlets, or Mittens to keep your hands and toes warm all winter long! We also have a workshop in which you can make your own Dream Catcher!
Did you know that Wellness classes are also creative? We’re excited to welcome Kimberley Koop back as an instructor this fall – she’s bringing 5 amazing programs for beginners and beyond to help you strengthen your body and gain coordination. If you’re completely new to Pilates, check out our Secrets to a Strong Back class, and if you’re on a tight schedule, check out Lunch Time Pilates – a 40 minute class during your lunch hour designed to get you out of your seat! Advanced students will appreciate a chance to work with Pilates balls, foam blocks, and other implements to help grow their repertoire.
You can also be creative while learning valuable skills – try a Culinary Arts class or learn a new Language! In fall, we’re offering our popular Kids in the Kitchen – a class for ages 9-12 where they can learn the basics of food preparation and enjoy cooking in a group! If you’re gearing up to travel the world, perhaps a class in French, Spanish, or German is what you’re looking for! We offer classes for beginners and advanced students, and often, no experience is necessary to join the beginner level classes.
Backyard Theatre Company is more than just acting! Participating in theatre helps students to build their confidence, ignite their creativity, and explore their imagination while providing an introduction to improvisation, character development, memorization, drama games, and more! Theatre is for everyone – we have classes for ages 5-17+! Graduates of the Backyard Theatre program are sure to enjoy our NEW! Young Company Performance Troupe – put your theatre education to work and perform in various events and locations across town!
Our amazing Arts4Tots program is preparing for another year of creative learning through dance, music, drama, visual arts, culture, and more! Young ones ages 3-5 will love the fun activities in class, and parents will love the Montessori-infused curriculum! Choose from mornings or afternoons, Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday.
We’re pleased to announce that we’re continuing our partnership with BOSS Dance Academy (formerly XCOMPANY) to offer 12 Week Introductory dance classes at the Steinbach Cultural Arts Centre. Choose from Creative Movement, Hip-Hop, or Jazz! These classes are the perfect way to dip your toes into the world of dance – no costume fees, no fundraising!
New this year! The Southeast Centre for Music– it’s the centre for excellence in music education, now under new leadership by David Klassen! Offering premiere instruction in violin, piano, music theory, voice, cello, and musical theatre, it’s a one-stop-shop for music education. Gabriela Gallo is heading up our popular FUSION Musical Theatre program and teaching classes for Home School groups! There are plenty of opportunities for everyone to get involved in musical education! Email [email protected] for more information about the programs, to meet the teachers, and inquire about studio space!
We’re so excited about our Fall programs, and we want you to be too! That’s why we’re offering the first session of most of our classes for FREE! It’s the perfect opportunity to see if the class is the right fit for you. Just give us a call to let us know you’re coming down (we still want to make sure we have supplies for you!). We’re looking forward to seeing you at the Steinbach Arts Council this fall!
