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.
