Registration Guidelines


You can register online, by phone (204-235-1069) or in-person (120 Eugenie Street). We also process registrations by email, but it is not the recommended method for high demand classes (for example, children’s classes and clay classes). 

Forum Art Centre has office hours Monday to Friday from 10 am – 3 pm to process in person registration.


Registration fees are due at the time of registration and are required to secure your spot in a class. Payment can be made by e-transfer, credit card, cash or cheque and online through the website’s secure payment system. A $5 convenience fee is charged when paying online or by credit card.

All classes except clay classes: please notify us of cancellation at least 10 working days before the first class to be eligible for a refund. Cancellations are subject to a $25 administration fee. No refunds are issued after the first class except for medical reasons. 

Clay classes: cancellations made within the first week of open registration are subject to a $25 administration fee. Cancellations made after the first week of registration are subject a 50% cancellation fee. This helps us mitigate the limited number of spots available in clay classes and provides us with enough time to ensure classes will run efficiently with full registration.


  • Any approved refunds are subject to a minimum $25 administration fee.
  • Should a class be cancelled due to low registration, you will be issued a full refund.  Notices of cancellation are emailed to students one week before the scheduled start date. 
  • We cannot refund fees or offer discounts if you miss classes or Open Studio sessions. We cannot offer extra access or time in studios to students outside of their scheduled class time. We will do our best to accommodate art pick up times outside of our public opening hours.
  • We do our best to confirm classes and send you a reminder by email one week before your class is scheduled to start. If you do not receive a confirmation, please consider your class confirmed and arrive for the first class. If you have any doubts, feel free to call.
  • If you made your payment by cash, cheque or e-transfer, you will receive a receipt after the second week of classes. Please reach out if you need it sooner. If you made your payment through our website at registration, your receipt was emailed at time of purchase.


We offer accessibility discounts from $25 – $50 upon request (subject to availability). We will process the discount directly. We’re committed to making our art classes as accessible as possible. Please reach out for more information.

We also have a bursary program for teens ages 12-16. This program provides free art classes and supplies for classes in the Winter, Spring and Fall sessions. Please see our Art Bursaries & Scholarship page for more information.


  • Forum Art Centre is not responsible for lost or missing materials belonging to students.
  • Some storage for materials is available at Forum Art Centre for the duration of your class in the current session. Please be mindful of bringing your finished projects home once class has finished.
  • All items belonging to students must be taken home at the end of each session, even if the student will be attending a class or open studio in the next session. Any materials left behind at the end of session are considered a donation to Forum Art Centre.


  • We have a small parking lot available for no charge. Space is limited.
  • There is plentiful two-hour street parking all around the centre. Please make sure you follow the street signage time limits: these may be monitored by the parking authority.


  • We are working hard to ensure that everyone at the Forum feels safe and at ease. Any form of harassment, intimidation or language that creates an unsafe environment will lead to an immediate sanction – we practice zero tolerance of bullying, racism, homophobia, transphobia, and misogyny.
  • We are working to ensure that systemic and institutional racism is identified and addressed by challenging any processes or policies that create barriers to access. If you see an opportunity for us to improve, please share your observations and suggestions with the staff or board of directors at
