The new Summer 2023 course calendar for HSAD is out and features new courses and the return of some of HSAD’s most popular programs.

Featuring 55 new classes and workshops, programs cover everything from Art as Activism, Contemporary Rug Hooking to Forging-Damascus Steel Construction.

There are day camps for children and teens, and week-long workshops for adults yearning for an artistic getaway in the picturesque Haliburton Highlands.

Within our list of notable instructors HSAD is excited to welcome more than two dozen new teachers to the Campus this summer to inspire and teach students.

Juno Award winning artist Susan Aglukark is hosting two four-day workshops in August. Other instructors include Julie Moon, Naomi Smith, Daniel Scott Tysdale and Lisa Barry, part of the creative team behind Homestead Pottery. Barry will be teaching an evening class on Wheel Throwing and Hand Building in the spring.

Everyone is welcome to attend a Walk About at the campus Thursday afternoons, watch students work and meet HSAD’s instructors.
