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. 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. ArtStarts in Schools is a charitable organization that seeks to expand the role of arts in education for the benefit of British Columbia's young people. Since 1996, ArtStarts has supported educators, artists, families and young people by offering a broad range of programs, services and resources.
