Spring 2016: After School Art Programs Registration

​​Artists for Kids offers After School Art classes for students each Fall, Winter and Spring term. All art supplies and materials are included in the course fee. Taught by art specialist teachers and assisted by a secondary art student, our classes provide students with the opportunity to further their artistic ability and foster positive attitudes towards the visual arts. Our classes run in various schools across the North Shore, and we proudly host an end-of-term  student exhibition at the Gordon Smith Gallery.  

Thank you to North Vancouver Recreation and Culture for their support.

Thank you for supporting our After School Art Program. Most classes are now full.

Please call our office at 604-903-3798 to inquire about the few remaining spaces. 

 
A limited number of bursaries are available for those in need of financial support.
