Classes & Workshops

Art at Hooper Studios 

Our Fall Schedule is now  posted 

encompasses working studios, art school as well as a Gallery and is located in the Kennebecasis Valley in Hampton, New Brunswick. From April to December, Hooper Studios offers classes and workshops in visual arts and crafts, for adults, teens and children. Children’s programs are designed to provide young people, ages 5 through 14, with an opportunity for creative exploration and experience in a non-competitive, friendly atmosphere. The school offers intensive studio-based workshops in a variety of fine art and craft media including clay, paint, metals, paper, printmaking, woodworking and more. Programs range from evening classes, one day workshops to one-week sessions and anyone may participate, from beginners to advanced professionals.

Hooper Studios is located in a stunning natural setting and provides a community of support for focused creative energy and work. We are surrounded by forty acres of beautiful woodlands, fields and gardens and just below us the amazingly beautiful Kennebecasis river winds through islands and marshland, a paradise of birds and wildlife.

Workshops and classes take place in a large, sunny studio with good working areas, a small library of art books, and homemade cookies and tea to enjoy. The emphasis of all the instruction is on the process rather then the finished product, and students learn to explore the important connections between art and nature.


Hooper Studios is hosting a FREE session of an intro to Eden Energy Medicine with Sue Hooper (second year student of Donna Eden Energy Medicine Certification Program).  Sunday afternoon September 13, 1:30 to 4  Energy Medicine shows you how to understand and work with your body’s reservoir of electromagnetic and more subtle energies to increase your vitality and enhance your health and your state of mind. This information session will bring us together to watch a video presentation of her basic principles and techniques. We will have an opportunity to learn her 5 minute daily energy routine which is a group of energy techniques to assist us in keeping our energies unblocked and flowing plus to go over any questions behind the other excercises that will be offered in the follow up classes. More information about Donna can be found at

her website:   Limited space available.  Call to preregister 650-3333
