ARTSTARTS GALLERY
The ArtStarts Gallery is the first in Canada devoted exclusively to young people’s art. Since the gallery opened in 2006, their exhibitions have celebrated the exciting artwork that emerges when students, educators and professional artists work together to deepen learning, creativity and community connections. The exhibitions often showcase the inspiring work resulting from ArtStarts’ Artists in the Classroom program, which supports opportunities for schools to work directly with professional artists to learn in and through the arts. ArtStarts on Saturdays is a free workshop series for families at the downtown gallery that features 45-minute, multi-disciplinary, culturally diverse workshops with some of the best children’s artists.
