How do I register?

When registering for this program you have a choice of what to pay.
If you are able to pay full or half price simply choose those price points and register yourself or a child. If you would rather "Pay What you Can" simply choose that option and continue with the registration process. When you attend the class you will have the opportunity to put your contribution towards the class in our "Pay what you can Can".

What is "Pay What you can"?

These Arts4All Workshops are generously supported by grant funding through the Ontario Trillium Foundation and community donors. This grant allows us to offer professionally taught classes at no-cost, low-cost, and subsidized rates with the intent to remove the barriers that hinder our community from participating in the arts. "Pay What You Can" classes allow participants to register online and pay what they can on site (via cash or cheque) in our donation jar. All funds received for registration will go back into our #BreakTheBarriersInitiative helping us provide ongoing programming to our community.

If you have questions about financial or travel assistance for these programs through the SSAC please contact


Full Price: $50.00 CAD
Half Price: $25.00 CAD
