It began as a small artisan show in the old Municipal Offices...


Our Story

The Annual Whitchurch-Stouffville Studio Tour has transformed into an event with over twenty venues showcasing more than thirty artists.  Many years ago, a small group of like-minded people looked for a way to showcase their artistic talent to the local community. 

Before the revitalized Nineteen On the Park, the old Stouffville Municipal Offices were occupied by local artists. The Clocktower Potters rented space for their kiln and three local painters turned former clerk offices into studios.  

During the Christmas season in 2000, those artists held a exhibition and sale of their work. The curious came out, the feedback was positive, and a Stouffville tradition began.   

What we do

The Studio Tour is a reciprocal relationship about access to the arts; local artists are able to share their work with the community, and visitors are able to not only experience local art, but form relationships with the artists. 

We are passionate about the arts in general and especially the arts in our community. We invite you to share our passion.

As a member of the Stouffville Studio Tour for years, I was always busy at my own studio on the weekend of the tour, I never had a chance to get out and see other artists work. Well, today I did and oh my, do we have some talented artists here in Stouffville!
