The North Vancouver School District offers a unique array of opportunities in the visual arts for students from K-12. From enrichment workshops with visual artists, after school art classes with certified teachers, class visits to the Gordon Smith Gallery, to district-wide exhibitions of student artwork, students in our school district have unique opportunities for thinking, creating, engaging and sharing in the visual arts.

Through the visual arts, students engage in the creative process and learn through discovery and practice. Learning provides students across all grade levels opportunities to engage with diverse perspectives and lived experiences – developing skills as caring and engaged community members.

Through opportunities such as the Artists for Kids Studio Arts Academy and a wide range of visual arts classes offered at the secondary level, students in our school district develop advanced skills and learn about careers in the visual arts.

Educators have access to a wide range of professional development opportunities and learning resources supporting their engagement with the visual arts curriculum and providing opportunities to integrate the visual arts across multiple areas of learning.

Collaborative, lively, messy – the wide array of visual arts opportunities in our school district connect students, teachers, staff and community through ideas, images, and materials.​
