Winged Canvas Online School & Summer Art Camp

Sign up for Virtual Summer Art Camp!

This summer, students can sign up for Summer art camps at Winged Canvas. These programs are meant to delight, inspire, and grow imaginations! Campers meet virtually with their instructor to discuss the creative process, learn new techniques, support each other and share artwork.

Kids are taught art fundamentals the fun and memorable way ― through popular culture, illustration, and self expression. Students often love to draw their own original characters with unique programs like Cartooning & Anime, Digital Art, Drawing Foundations, Acrylic Painting, Watercolour and more!

Summer sessions are limited to 10 students for a better learning experience, and to make it possible for the teacher to give individual guidance and feedback.

Teens wanting to explore art during the school break can also sign up for Summer Intensives. These camps specialize in different mediums and creative disciplines such as figure drawing, character design, comics & manga, digital painting, animation, illustration, landscape painting and portraiture.

Markham art school offers help to teachers

“I've heard teachers that said: ‘you know what? I just give up ... we're not going to do art; it's just it's too much.’ They were really, really struggling,” Lu said. 

Winged Canvas has launched a web portal for teachers so they can create art lessons in their physical or virtual classrooms, according to school curriculum standards.

“Bite-sized lessons are taught step by step by professional art educators and award-winning artists,” Lu said.

The portal for teachers is based on a subscription system. Founding members are able to shape the contents of the program.

“We wanted to make it really easy so that teachers can enjoy the creative process with their students, and not feel like they have to be teachers, but they can be participants, and in that way, they can build stronger connections with their students, and be able to have fun with them and create something unique with their students.”

Winged Canvas wanted to give teachers the tools to teach great quality art lessons with without the teacher having to raid Pinterest or use YouTube videos, Lu said. 

“Now that we don't have a physical location, our costs have come down, so we're able to pay our teachers more,” she said. They were also able to hire 25 people.
