About the Gallery

The ArtStarts Gallery is the only free, public gallery in Canada exclusively dedicated 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. Often featured are inspiring projects resulting from our Artists in the Classroom grants, which support opportunities for schools to work directly with professional artists to learn in and through the arts.
