Art Classes on the West Island

Art Classes, Theatre classes, Music classes and Dance Classes on the West Island to exercise your creativity.


Were you aware that the Dollard Centre for the Arts (DCA) is a non-profit association that is responsible for many types of courses and programs under the umbrella of Fine Arts? This includes classes for adults, teens and children both in the performing and visual arts, such as dance, music, painting and drawing, etc…. DCA hosts a monthly, free-admission “Art Hive”, allowing a time and place where adults can explore various art mediums in a studio with a professional artist on hand. The DCA runs the largest West Island annual “Craft Fair” in November and the Dollard Summer Fine Art Camp.

If you would like to make a difference in your community, we are currently looking for individuals who might be interested in joining our Board of Directors of the Dollard Centre for the Arts. Please note that this is a volunteer position, requiring one’s passion, inspiration, involvement and their presence in (about) 4 meetings held annually. If you would like more information please contact Susan Hodgson at

We offer exciting adult, teen and children’s classes in the visual arts (drawing, painting, watercolour, clay, etc.), theatre school (Improv, acting classes), music classes (Piano lessons, guitar lessons, singing lessons and song writing classes) and dance classes (Tango, Hip-Hop, classical dance lessons) for residents of Montreal and the West Island and neighboring communities.
