Unleash Your Creativity

Come let the brilliance of Saskatchewan’s boreal forest inspire your creative spirit. forestART offers you four days to completely immerse yourself in your own art practice –  in a medium you are versed in, or something completely new! Step out of your day-to-day to find a community of like-minded creatives.

Class sizes are restricted to a maximum of 6-10 dependant on class so you receive incredible one on one instruction.

Classes are held outdoors under shaded structures to ensure you are fully immersed with Nature.

 Covid-19 Policy: 

Physical distancing during class and throughout the Ness Creek Site must be practiced.
Participants will be given their own workspace and set of tools to use for the duration of the class.
Some tools and equipment may be shared by participants which will be sanitized with bleach after each use. The shower house/washroom is open daily and sanitization will be in accordance with Sask Health Authority guidelines. Sanitizer is also available in the buildings.
