About the Gallery

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.

Our exhibitions often showcase the inspiring work resulting from ArtStarts' Artists in the Classroom grants, which support opportunities for schools to work directly with professional artists to learn in and through the arts.
