CAGT Meetings

NEW! The Guild is offering access to our meetings through Zoom from May to August while Neilson Park Creative Centre is closed for summer camps. Topics and Dates for Meetings 2020/21 are listed on this Meetings Page.

CAGT meets at Neilson Park Creative Centre (NPCC) in Studio A 2 on the second Thursday of the month at 6:30 p.m. or Sunday afternoons at 1:00 p.m., as scheduled. Guests are welcome to attend one general meeting to learn about the Guild. For more information, please contact us at info@calligraphicartstoronto.ca.

Meeting Format

New! September to December members can attend monthly meetings in the studio and for access to our library and/or participate on-line in the Zoom format for planned presentations. In 2021 there will also be a combination of in studio and/or guest presenters on-line with Zoom. Invitations and passwords will be sent to your email prior to the monthly meeting.

Meeting Topics

We’re looking for ideas and for people who might like to either lead or share either on-line or in the studio. Please contact Ramona Matthews by email.
