Message from Tony Luppino, Executive Director
Welcome to the Leighton Art Centre’s new website! I do hope you find this electronic connection to the exciting programs coming your way easy to use, timely, and a source of inspiration and creative ideas.
Teachers can now book classes and the programs they want, on the days that work for them, by using our up-to-the-minute calendar of available dates.
Registration for summer camp is available here first. Registering online is a great way to ensure your kids get to enjoy one of Calgary’s favourite Art & Nature Camps before all sessions are sold out.
And the new site is not just to make sure the kids are not left out! Whether you are a practicing artist looking to hone your skills with the mentorship of a senior artist or a lifelong learner who wants to try a class in a new artistic area, from drawing to mosaics there is a workshop for you. Online registration is easy and fast.
Our many supporters, including our Horizon Patron Circle, can donate online and direct donations to specific programs such as tuition to the school program for needy students, nature conservation, art exhibitions, or to creating a future for the Centre through the Leighton Art Centre Endowment Fund. Many donations will be matched by government grants and private donors.
We want to especially thank The Calgary Foundation which has made it possible for us to create this new website through a very generous grant. Please visit our Sponsor page and support all of our corporate and institutional supporters as a way to show thanks for their generous contribution to the Leighton Art Centre programs.
Our Vision “to bring out the art in everyone” was created by Barbara Leighton herself. It is now easier than ever to bring out the art in you! So have a spin around the site and find the program that is right for you and your family. I’m sure Barbara would approve of how we do it in the 21st Century.
