The Good Shepherd Art Studio opened its doors September of 2003. Since that time, our Artist-in-Residence, Kathie MacDuff, has conducted numerous mixed media, watercolour, and creative journaling classes.  

We’ve hosted many acclaimed guest instructors and have facilitated numerous sales and exhibitions including the popular More Journals, a show featuring 100 visual books lovingly created by local artists.

Everyone is welcome to work in community on whatever creative project they have while being able to access the studio resources.
