McTavish Academy Of Art

McTavish Academy Of Art (MAOA) transformed an 18,000 sq. ft. unused school in North Saanich into a vibrant and creative arts facility. MAOA is a center where the community can connect and explore their creativity, expand on talents, explore new ones and host amazing events. This brings cross generational collaboration, family and learning to life through the arts.

A community united by the ideas of compassion and creativity has incredible power. Art of all kinds; music, dance, literature, yoga, traditional arts, visual arts can lift a community. We look forward to exploring them with you.

Get creative in our multi-media art studio. Explore various classes & workshops.


Center yourself in the yoga studio. Open 7 days a week with classes for all levels.


Find your groove in the dance studio, with a range of dance styles to choose from.
