Lunenburg School of the Arts offers workshops led by professional art educators and working artists. Our small and intimate class sizes allow students to work closely with instructors and each other, fostering self-expression in a supportive atmosphere. We offer courses in a wide variety of mediums, our programs encourage exploration, discovery and development of skills and ideas. We are located in the heart of Lunenburg, a UNESCO World Heritage site, a hub for arts and music. With its historic townscape and a working waterfront, the Town of Lunenburg is our campus.
Wasn’t that a party?!
We had such fun for the past five years celebrating Nova Scotia craft spirits and cocktails in beautiful Lunenburg.
The work involved in organizing such an event has proved to be more than we are willing to continue to take on, so we have now decided that we will not be holding another festival this fall of 2020.
In the future we may pick some of the most popular workshops and events and hold them on a smaller more intimate scale, but for the moment we’re taking a break.
Stay tuned for more information.
