Frequently Asked Questions

EAG classes are designed for the group members.

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

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


 ​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. Please complete the registration form and include iit with your cheque.

    • e-transfers can be sent to <>

      • 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(es), date(s) & time(s) for which you are registering 

      • Please complete a registration form and send it via email to after you send your e-transfer.

  •  HST is added to all class fees. Our HST number is on the class registration form.

  •  EAG does not send class confirmations…notifications are made only if a class is full.

  • EAG reserves the right to substitute instructors in any class at any time. Our instructors may arrange for other artists to teach occasional classes during the term.


  •  If a class is cancelled due to low registration, a full refund of fees will be made or you may transfer to another class if there is space available.  Otherwise, registration fees will be refunded only when a written notice of withdrawal is received no later than five business days before the first class.  An administration fee of $15.00 will be deducted from a refund due to withdrawal from a class (as described above).  No refunds will otherwise be made.

  • This policy applies to all classes, workshops and studio groups.

Why do we have to pay 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, instructor fees, model fees and administrative costs  are built into class fees.


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

  • ​The Advanced Printmaking program is the only group that may use the large press.  Documented printmaking experience is required to use the large press.

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. For safety reasons, 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.

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.

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

  • Every participant must bring a table covering, and if they are using an easel, a drop cloth to protect the floor beneath it.  Please also  bring your own paper towels and other items needed for clean-up.
