After School Art
​Artists for Kids offers After School Art classes for students each Fall, Winter and Spring term. All art supplies and materials are included in the course fee. Taught by art specialist teachers and assisted by secondary art students, our classes provide students the opportunity to further their artistic ability and foster positive attitudes towards the visual arts. This year, since we cannot meet in person, we are offering a couple of virtual art classes over Microsoft Teams. See below for info and to register!

 

Thank you to North Vancouver Recreation and Culture for their support.
