The arts can spark something special in young lives.

When young people explore different art forms, they learn, discover their own creativity and build confidence
to try something new.

ArtStarts offers a wide range of programs in schools. We also love to connect with families outside of the classroom. Join us at free monthly workshops or at the ArtStarts Gallery. We hope to see you soon!

The ArtStarts Gallery is the first in Canada devoted exclusively to young people's art. Since the gallery opened in 2006, our exhibitions have celebrated the exciting artwork that emerges when students, educators and professional artists work together to deepen learning, creativity and community connections.

What Will Your Child's World Be Like in 20 Years?

What Will Your Child's World Be Like in 20 Years?

This year is ArtStarts' 20th Anniversary. As we celebrate our accomplishments and impact, we are also inspired to think ahead about what the next 20 years hold for young people. What role can art and creativity play to support our next generation to thrive in the future? To help us explore this question, we sat down with 20 community leaders across different sectors and asked them to share their story and thoughts on the relevance of art and creativity. Read the interviews.
