Audition for our one-of-a-kind 2022/2023 Coquitlam Youth Theatre program Find out More!
As part of our Creative HeARTs program, we worked with exhibiting artist Kiranjot Kaur to create accessible, easy-to-follow, drawing workshops for all ages and abilities. Learn how to draw people using the “bean body” approach!
During the early days of COVID, we learned that the pandemic disproportionately affected marginalized populations, in particular, newcomers may be vulnerable to the psychological impacts of social distancing; missing their home country and the friends and family they left behind while having limited opportunities to make new connections. Place des Arts’ Creative HeARTs program provides free, in-person art workshops facilitated by local artists for newcomer and marginalized families to safely engage with the arts. This program aligns with Place des Arts’ mission to inspire the artist in everyone and our objective to provide quality, accessible and affordable programs. We want all to feel welcome and safe in our community.
