Art Together

Art Together participants show off their arm-knitted creations made with local artist Karen Cancino

Make art and share your ideas! If you’re a young person, the Gallery wants your help planning upcoming projects, programs, and events. This is a unique opportunity to design the type of art activities you envision, and to create do-it-together art projects with mentoring artists.

Past workshops have included:

  • Arm knitting with Karen Cancino
  • Printmaking with Sarah Hart
  • Film graffiti with Alex MacKenzie
  • Breakdancing with Arthur Tiojanco
  • Painting with Jim Adams
  • Creative writing with Fred Wah
  • Mock online radio show with Don Chow

Come enjoy some food, meet new friends, and make a difference in your community.

Contact Charis at artgallery@surrey.ca to get involved.

All events happen on a Tuesday at Surrey Art Gallery unless otherwise noted.
