Préville Fine Arts Centre is launching a nation-wide, arts-based community education platform Préville Online! this coming January. Through its online courses, the St. Lambert based not-for-profit organization aims to keep students of all ages engaged through live, bilingual arts classes with experienced teachers from the centre, as well as renowned artists from across Canada.
The programs encourage friendships and connections while learning new skills in an encouraging and non-judgemental environment. Small class sizes ensure individual support and interactions with teachers, and the virtual platform allows students of all abilities to participate in the evening, weekend, and weekday classes.
Dance, music, and more
Some of the live classes that participants can enjoy during the winter 2021 session include a music production and software class with Mixart Studios’ Boris Petrowski, robotics courses for children and adults, exercise classes, cooking, sewing, chess, music, and contemporary dance with Jera Wolfe, a leading Canadian dancer and choreographer of Métis heritage. Some classes include activity kits that are delivered to your home, equipment loans, and a possible visit to a live recording studio for those in the Mixart Studios’ class.
Online courses for those with special needs
Children and young adults with special needs can create lasting memories with Karen Natho, an award-winning special needs program developer, teacher, and advocate from British Columbia. Karen will be leading Music and Movement for Kids with Autism (ages 3-6), and, Living Out Loud–Group Activities for Young Adults with Special Needs (18+).
Préville also offers support for the homeschooling community through its expanded tutoring program, and a variety of weekday classes to complement core-subject learning, such as music, art, and coding.
