This season’s Creative Thursdays are inspired by works of art in the exhibition Uninvited: Canadian Women Artists in the Modern Moment.

Our online studio sessions feature artists from across the country, working in a range of mediums. In each one-hour Zoom webinar you’ll be introduced to a new work of art from Uninvited, and be guided through a studio lesson by a practicing artist.
