ArtStarts Gallery programming is now online. Participate in ArtStarts on Saturdays every month on Facebook.
We are planning on re-opening the Gallery to the public and returning to an in-person format for ArtStarts on Saturdays and ArtStarts at River Market in 2022. Stay up to date on developments by signing up for our newsletter.
Looking for fun, free things to do with kids in the Lower Mainland? ArtStarts is pleased to offer free arts-based events for kids and families each month—in both Vancouver and New Westminster. Join some of the best artists working with young people for performances and workshops that explore a wide range of cultures and artistic disciplines. Each 45-minute workshop takes place twice, at 11am and 1pm. Please arrive a little early as this is a popular program. Ideal for ages 8 and under, but all are welcome. Free! Donations welcome.
Attention: The lift at our Vancouver location is currently out of order until further notice. Please read more information here.
If you have any questions about these free family performances, contact our Program Manager, Lily Cryan at [email protected]
ArtStarts offers us something special each month we always look forward to it.
My daughter says it was awesome and she wishes she could do it every day!
This was a wonderful way to spend an afternoon with my son—making art!
Thanks for bringing this to our 'hood. You are helping us to raise active and bright kids.
What an incredible performance! It was thoroughly enjoyed by our kids and by us, the parents. Thank you!
Wonderful, inspiring and fun workshop! Will use the skills at home, too.
Coming to ArtStarts in my community is always the highlight of the weekend.
The kids loved it and dad really got into it too - surfaced some amazing hidden artistic talents!
Great! Educational! Fun! Artistic!
