Engaging Families

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.

While ArtStarts offers a wide range of programs in schools, we also love to connect with families outside of the classroom.

Stay updated with our future events on our website, social media, and by signing up for our newsletter.

ArtStarts is delighted to offer free arts programming for kids and families to enjoy together. We also host special events for exhibition openings, Family Day, National Indigenous Peoples Day and more, often in partnership with local organizations.

Visit the ArtStarts Gallery

The ArtStarts Gallery is currently closed due to renovation. We are reopening in Fall 2024!

Located in downtown Vancouver, 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.
