>Vivi - I took classes at the Dundas School of Art quite a while ago. I
think they have officially upgraded considerably (giving credentials etc.).
It is a wonderful school, great atmosphere - and LOTS of wonderful artistic
and ceramic folk in the area. Very active with terrific places to show work.
Dundas is a beautiful little town in a valley with much conservation area
around - walking, cycling - sigh - I wish I was still living there. It is
very close to Hamilton and McMaster University and about 45 min. to l hour
away from Toronto. Depending upon what exactly you are looking for I would
certainly recommend it for soulful development. Helen
