Welcome back to a new year of art and creativity

Happy-New-Year-Images-2018-1.jpg

​The New Year brings lots of fresh opportunities for creative discovery and at AFK we look forward to celebrating the artist in every child.

Our popular Winter After School Art Programs begin the week of January 15, 2018. Taught by master art teachers, these classes allow young people to delight in time away from electronics as they explore their imagination and discover the joy of creating with their own hands. Many of our classes are already filled.

Classes that still have some space available include Tuesday classes for those in Grades 2-4:

  • Positively Picasso
  • Masterful Mixed Media, or
  • Artful Adventures, which welcomes those in Grades 2-5.

For students in Grades 4-7, our available classes include:

  • Clay Creations on Wednesdays
  • Watercolour Exploration on Wednesdays, and
  • The Art of Architecture on Thursdays.





Register online and and give your child a gift of creativity that they'll carry with them through their life. 

In addition to our ever-popular art classes for kids, we have a busy Winter schedule ahead of us.

Art Assistant Training Program
Thanks to a generous grant from the City of North Vancouver, we are proud to be able to offer our Art Assistant Training program. For three Wednesday afternoons in January, we will provide training to secondary students wishing to become art assistants or teacher's assistant.

Artist Training at Mountainside
Through a generous grant from Coast Capital Savings, we are pleased to be bringing art career training to students at Mountainside Secondary. For three consecutive Mondays in January, secondary students will be working with Tania Gleave and Jud Beaumont to explore their skills and abilities.

New Print Release
On February 22, we will be proudly launching a new Graham Gillmore print. More information will be available soon.

Memory • History • Story
Our teaching exhibition continues to draw record numbers of students and visitors. We invite you to visit the exhibition, which runs through the end of April.

There's always something happening at AFK, so please check back often for the latest news. We look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming events in 2018.
