ArtStarts provides students access to artistic experiences that are relevant, representative, and integrated into their learning through the Artist Directory. We combined the Artists in the Classroom and Artists on Tour directories in 2022 to make it easier to book artistic experiences in your school.
The Directory features over 90 artists available for schools across BC who offer performances, workshops, and/or classroom residencies specifically tailored for the K-12 education system.
Browse the full directory of artists below or filter based on your search criteria.
