The Préville Fine Arts Centre has been based on Montreal’s South shore for almost 50 years. We provide group and private lessons in all artistic disciplines, from music, dance, visual arts and theatre, to Indigenous arts, songwriting, sound recording and much more. We have access to professional artists through our staff and through our years of experience as working artists ourselves. We work with our artists to create unique workshops that we offer to schools, both in person and online.
Creative Approach and Experiences OfferedPréville’s workshops range from interactive performance-based experiences to hands-on sessions where students create along with the presenters.
We offer ready-made one-hour workshops as well as multi-week recurring sessions.
We believe that sharing through the arts is the best way to bring people together and to promote cultural understanding and respect. On top of that, dancing, singing and creating together is just fun.
The Indigenous artists we work with offer students the opportunity to learn about Indigenous arts and cultures through different craft and movement workshops. African and Latin dance workshops get students smiling and moving while expanding cultural understanding.
Music workshops range from songwriting techniques to exploring our unique voices. STEAM classes teach the art of coding, and visual art ranges from how to create a mindful practice of journaling to artistic techniques and the artists and history behind them.
