The Art Room is an artist run studio occupying the original art space in the former Holy Angels High School, now the New Dawn Centre for Social Innovation in Sydney Nova Scotia. Members gather regularly to paint, explore new ideas, methods and materials, and to indulge their passion to create.
The Art Room is able to offer a limited number of memberships which enable members to participate in Open Studio on Monday evenings as well as access to a personal desk and storage space. Membership fees are $50 per month.
The Art Room is also able to offer temporary space for laying out a large project at the cost of $10 per week.
The Art Room offers regular workshops guided by professional artists and open studio time for members and non-members as well as social and team building art events for workplaces, community groups and friends.
The Art Room is interested in encouraging a love of art, painting and creativity and in exploring the relationship between art and social and community change.
