Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Who is eligible to take an EAG class? 

  • EAG offers both classes and weekend workshops. Non-members may take weekend workshops, space allowing. Please contact us to register.

  • To register for a regular multi-session class or open studio option, EAG & NPCC membership is required. This supports our use of the our wonderful art centre.  

2. ​How can I pay?

  • EAG accepts payments by cheque or e-transfer only.

    • Cheques should be payable to the "Etobicoke Art Group". Cheques may be mailed or dropped off at the NPCC reception desk.Please use black or blue ink when writing cheques as other ink colours do not scan well in the bank machines.

  • e-transfers can be sent to <eagpayments@gmail.com>

    • DO NOT include a security question 

    • Please make sure to type the address exactly including the "s"

    • Use the note at the bottom of the transfer to state the class, date & time for which you are registering

  •  HST is included in all class fees.


3. Why do we have to pay drop in fees?

  • EAG pays rental fees to NPCC for every session. In addition, there are costs such as insurance and equipment to be covered. Our costs remain low as most work is done by volunteers but the cost of using studio space has to be covered. Studio costs are built into class fees as well.


4. If I join EAG or take a printmaking class, can I use the large press? 

  • ​The Thursday program is the only group that may use the large press.  The Thursday program always has a waiting list. Ongoing membership and documented printmaking experience is required to have your name maintained on the waiting list. 

5. Is the small press available to members during Open Studio times?

  • The small press may be used by members who have taken an EAG printmaking class and conditionally on another printmaker working with them. At least 2 printmakers must be present for use of the small press. In addition, there is a set of rules for use of the small press that must be followed. Copies of the Small Press Guidelines are available in the studio.

6.  Is there a Class convener ?

  • Every EAG class and workshop has a convener. The convener is responsible for relaying messages to the class, ensuring that every class member uses the equipment correctly and follows safety procedures, and that the instructor has a class list.

7. Are there extra supplies that I need to bring to class ?

  • Every particpant must bring a table covering, and if they are using an easel, a drop cloth to protect the floor beneath it. It is also recommended that you bring your own paper towels and other items need for clean-up.
