Are the programs at CANVAS Academy only for kids?

Is it too late for me to attend a course at CANVAS Academy?

No! We firmly believe that it’s never too late or too early to start your art career and that ANYONE can learn the skill of drawing/painting/creative expression. Our holiday workshops are open to anyone over the age of 14 with any level of skill set or experience. Our courses are designed to accommodate anyone from a creative just starting to explore art and digital; to an experienced or even professional artist wanting to take their art to the next level.

We have had students of all ages join in on the fun and learning and walk away with new knowledge, skills and a growing portfolio of work.

At CANVAS we do have specific programs aimed at certain demographics too; like our CANVAS DiPopeye program, for high school students from JHB townships; and CANVAS Junior, an annual workshop for kids between 9 and 12; but these programs are supplementary to our core, holiday workshops.

There are also newer programs in the works like our upcoming intermediate, weekend workshops aimed at the more experienced digital artist who wants to focus on a specialized skill such as digital fine art rendering & painting or even high-end environment and concept art.

If you are ever in doubt, we recommend you check out the specifics of the course you are interested in on our website and contact us to find out how we can best accommodate you. We will always find or even make a spot for someone who is passionate about creative expression through drawing and painting – no matter what your age or level of experience!
