About North Mount Pleasant Arts Centre

At North Mount Pleasant, our specialty is ceramics. In fact, this facility contains over a dozen kilns including electric, gas and specialty raku, sawdust, salt, and wood-fired. Draw, paint or try your hand on the potter's wheel. At North Mount Pleasant Arts Centre visual arts opportunities abound. In addition to our registered arts programs, we offer studio memberships for established artists, custom programs for groups, birthday parties for kids, and school arts programs for students of all ages.

North Mount Pleasant Arts Centre has been offering fine arts classes and studio space to Calgarians of all ages and abilities for more than 25 years. Housed in a heritage property built as a school in 1913, North Mount Pleasant ceramics and visual arts classes are varied and will appeal to all levels of personal competency.
