For 25 years, Raw Art Workshop has been holding creative classes for all ages at its West End studio. Raw Art Workshop has proudly taught over a million creatives, from budding little artists developing their talents to adults rediscovering and rekindling their passion for arts and crafts.

With the addition of its in-school programs in 2019, the studio has been bustling than ever before. As another year gets underway, Raw Art remains committed to guiding its new batch of creatives through its lead instructor Tracy McDowall and her team.

Arts and crafts classes are a way for the children to develop their fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination and creativity. For adults, these creative classes are for stress relief and for getting unstuck in a rut when work, routines and responsibilities become overwhelming.

Hands-on art workshops also tap part of the brain that helps with critical thinking, problem-solving and complex analysis. Thus, adults and kids alike can greatly benefit from these sessions.
