Route 11 Creative Arts Centre is a grassroots local creative community located in the old library building at 101 Klassen Street West in Warman, Saskatchewan.
This community service, not for profit organization is managed by the Route 11 Arts Cooperative, a volunteer board of directors, and is partners with the City of Warman. The idea behind Route 11 Creative Arts Centre was the concept and dream of a team of volunteers. Starting in 2016 the group began negotiating with the City of Warman to create a home base for Arts and Culture in and around our communities.
From there, a mix use facility was formed in June of 2017, providing space for Artist Studios, Gallery, Workshop and Community Space. A variety of creative activities, workshops and classes, for all ages, along with art exhibitions by professional and emerging Artists are available to the public.
Run by volunteers, Route 11 offers Memberships to help support the development of arts and culture in our communities. The members of Route 11 are given the opportunity to develop their creative practice by attending members only studio time, engage in monthly creative prompts and be part of the annual members gallery exhibition.
“Growth has been slow and steady. Board members and studio artists have changed, but the goal of creating professional quality art and culture workshops, classes and activities at affordable prices for all ages and demographics has consistently grown,” Creative Workshop Facilitator & Art Instructor Tracy Buechler said.

“Due to the world pandemic, Route 11 has had to slow expansion of programming for the time being, which has given us a wonderful opportunity to reflect on all our accomplishments. Route 11 is excited for the future and looking forward to offering some outstanding gallery exhibitions and great art experiences to our communities,” Buechler added.
