Art Factory Community Programs 2018-2020


Art Factory Intensives are 6-8 week hands-on workshop series (held once per week). Facilitated by current NSCAD students, using NSCAD facilities and studio spaces. The intensive programs are designed to enable incremental learning for participants through peer to peer education. Each intensive works with a cohort of participants from one of our community partners.  The training, employment and support offered to student facilitators in the Art Factory Intensives prepares them to teach/facilitate Art Factory Outreach Workshops.
