Max Ottawa Art Workshops

Max Ottawa is a health organization that presents a wide variety of services, events and workshops for guys who are into guys, and who live within the Ottawa area. There's always something fun happening at Max Ottawa each week! But what's even better is that most, if not all, of their monthly social events are free!!! You can find out about weekly events at this link:

I'm the instructor for the "MAXpress Yourself" art workshops which are being offered on the 2nd Tuesday each month at Max Ottawa, 251 Bank St, 7:00pm to 9:00pm. This is a free, drop-in workshop series, so there is no need for registration. Please contact me with any questions, I'm very happy to hear from you:

Additionally, if there is an artistic project that you have been wanting to try, such as painting, drawing, stain glass, pottery, or anything else you can think of, please let me know as my aim is to offer art workshops that accommodate the interests of guys into guys within the community.
These workshops are designed for beginners, so there's no experience needed. Join us and try something new! All of the workshop supplies are provided. If you have some artistic experience, feel free to bring some of your work to show the group if you wish. The goal of this workshop series is to provide a fun social event for guys who are into guys, especially for those who might feel isolated in the gay community. Perhaps you're not into the bar scene, or maybe you're not into sports, or maybe you are but want to change things up. Please feel welcome to come and join us. Regardless if you are a shy guy (like me!) or a social butterfly, young or young at heart, all are welcome!
