Now at the Village Gallery

The ability to create is a human necessity; it helps us define who we are as human beings. For children it is part of learning and exploring our own human curiosity. From the moment we pick up a crayon and put it to paper it becomes an exploration of the world we live in. For children it is a chance to explore, observe and imitate, trying to figure out how things operate and how to control themselves and their environments. This unrestricted exploration helps children form connections in their brain, it helps them learn—and it’s also fun.

Art allows youth to practice a wide range of skills that are useful not only for life, but also for learning.

We hope that you will join the Monashee Arts Council in supporting the art among youth by visiting the Village Gallery for the 2nd Annual ArtKids!  1975 Vernon Street. (Highway 6) we will be open 10am-4pm, Monday to Saturday. 

The show will now run from Oct 12th – Nov 12th
