ArtStarts: Free Arts-Based Events for Kids and Families

Looking for fun, free things to do with kids in the Lower Mainland? ArtStarts offers free arts-based events for kids and families each month—in both Vancouver and New Westminster. Join some of the best artists working with young people for performances and workshops that explore a wide range of cultures and artistic disciplines. Each 45-minute workshop takes place twice, at 11am and 1pm. Please arrive a little early as this is a popular program. Ideal for ages 8 and under, but all are welcome. Free! Donations welcome.
