Inspiration for art and education abounds.
As professional art educators, we are always developing new programs and curricula to enhance and advance our in-classroom experience, and are pleased to provide resources for parents and families looking to learn more about art as well.
Resources for School Educators are available here.
For the public:
Londsdale Public Art Walking Tour
In honour of Vancouver’s Biennale, Bill MacDonald, retired Director of Artists for Kids, has created an extensive brochure on a walking tour, starting by the Gordon Smith Gallery of Canadian Art, and moving down Lonsdale to the waterfront.
This Public Art walk is an initiative of the Vancouver Biennale and the City of North Vancouver through the support of the Arts Office. Its goal is to raise awareness of the great Public Art in our midst.
The tour is a comfortable, two- to three-hour downhill stroll.

Many of our works are on paper, as we have long viewed paper as an effective and accessible means for artists to share the vision.
A newspaper article, entitled "Paper is a Cut Above" outlines how, at Art Basel Miami in 2014, galleries and museums are embracing works on paper for the same reasons.
This article outlines the shift in perspective.
