Anyone can take courses at the WHEAT Institute! Join us as a drop-in student in a wide array of art and expressive arts courses to have a taste of a cornucopia of transformational creative arts opportunities in movement, poetry, drama, music and more! Relevant to helpers of all kinds: teachers, guidance counsellors, resource teachers, behavior support teachers, clergy, recreation leaders, and anyone interested in learning to reach and motivate others through the medicine of art. You will love the kindred spirits you meet along the way, as you join this social justice minded peace movement through the healing power of the arts. View a list of courses here.


For the first time ever, we are also very excited to be offering four terms of Beginner nehiyawewin (Cree), which is open to all! As a response to the TRC Calls to Action, in celebration of the International Year of Indigenous Languages and in recognition of language as an inimitable tool for personal and social transformation, we are pleased to introduce our nehiyawewin teacher Bill Cook, and his daughter and helper Billie Rose. Join us in our live, online classroom, once weekly, and enhance your love of life! Also, stay tuned for Anishnaabemowin class!
