The Cowichan Valley Arts Council believes in the importance of art to children and youth, as well as family. Our programs are designed to provide unique opportunities to develop talent, spark curiosity and showcase the creative excellence of youth in the Cowichan Valley.
Art Space Drop-In
Art Space is for students aged 13 to 19 who wish to nurture their creativity. Our activities will take inspiration from nature, our community, our dreams, visions, and challenges. The Cowichan Valley Arts Council studio offers a respectful environment to work in teams or individually.
Youth mentorship Program
Nurturing young talent is important to us. Our Youth Mentorship Program connects students grade-9 and up with professional artistic mentors to refine their craft, encourage potential & inspire big dreams.
Kids Camp Program
We have partnered with the Cowichan Community Centre. to develop a summer camp program that allows children to explore a variety of art forms in a fun and exciting way. Why? Because a love of art begins in childhood. There are six different options to give your child an immersive art experience.
