The Monart Art School of Ottawa is celebrating its 19th Anniversary!

The last 2 and a half years have been tough. As restrictions and normalcy are beginning to return, we would like to thank everyone over the past 19 years for being a part of the Monart Family. Monart opened its classroom doors back in 2003 and since then has taught countless artists the techniques and traditions of drawing and painting. Here’s to many more to come! Please join us in September for art lessons and keep the spirit of Art going for years to come! Go to the gallery page…

Art time is Family time
Resources the whole family can enjoy at home

We also ask any of our students or any child that wants to make a “thank you” drawing to all the people out there giving their time and exposing their lives so the rest of us we can keep going; the doctors, nurses, bus drivers, the workers at the grocery store, drivers delivering food etc. We will try to send those drawings to all those places so they know we are all thankful for what they are doing.

Welcome to the Monart Art School of Ottawa

Our studio is a licensed Monart Drawing School – a place where anyone can learn to draw and discover new ways to express his or her creative fire! We offer classes for both children and adults – whether you are 5 or 95, come and join us!Just as learning musical notes is fundamental to playing an instrument or practicing ballet positions is basic to a dancer, learning to draw is a foundation for all of the visual arts and a true life-skill that can foster an appreciation for the natural world, stimulate a creative spirit, and even enrich a career. Find out more about the Monart method and the Monart Art School of Ottawa on this website, and make sure to check back regularly to see what’s new!

Portfolio Creation Course

Our Portfolio Creation course is designed with beginners in mind, but is perfectly suitable for practicing artists looking to increase their skills. The course is broken up into three (3) sections: Drawing, Painting and Life Drawing. We feel that having a strong foundation in these 3 areas will give students the skills and the portfolio to take on any challenge.
