Spring Break Art Camps

Artist-led Spring Break Art Camps inspire kids to experiment, create, learn and share. Visit or call 250.754.1750 to register.

Listen to the Sea!

Inspired by our relationship to the sea we will design, draw, paint, collage, print, photograph and build, using both traditional and non-traditional methods of art making. Art Camps are taught by working artists and emphasize experimentation, play, critical thinking, and are designed to build kids’ confidence in their creative potential!
