For over twelve years Vancouver Island Art Workshops has had the privilege of hosting some of North America’s most renowned art instructors. During this time, we have gained the support of an expanding community of emerging and established artists who have grown along with us and continue to make us an integral part of their art education.

Vancouver Island Art Workshops

We have a terrific line up of exciting and sought-after artists booked for years to come. We also have some very talented "hidden gems" we can't wait to introduce. Each will share their insights into exploring the creative process, learning new techniques, pushing boundaries and looking for new ways of self expression. We offer workshops in painting, drawing, printmaking, jewelry, social media, and more.

Our workshop atmosphere is open, sharing and supportive. This, coupled with our hands-on approach ensures that Vancouver island Art Workshops delivers what students and instructors alike often refer to as "the best workshop ever!"
