Educating the next generation of artists

Artists For Kids was established in 1989 through a generous partnership with some of Canada's finest artists and the North Vancouver School District. 

Our mission, through the sale of original prints created by its artist-patrons, is to build an art education legacy for the children of British Columbia.
