Fall for Art Classes at Leigh Square


Leigh Square Port Coquitlam Fall Art Classes

With summer winding to a close, many of us are starting to look forward to September here in the V3H. For many people, that means a routine to school and ordinary routines. It can also mean starting new classes, and learning new skills, no matter your age. Today we’re highlighting some great classes for kids and adults coming up this fall at Leigh Square Community Arts Village in Port Coquitlam.

Classes for Kids

Leigh Square’s Fall program brochure offers a variety of options for ages 0-18. With experienced instructors and diverse programming for all skill levels, they encourage learning in a creative way, while helping facilitate new friendships. Plus, with the Canadian government’s new, non-refundable tax credit for eligible artistic, cultural, recreational or developmental activities for children, it’s even easier.  Up to $500 in expenses may be eligible per year per child under the age of 16.  For more information on the new children’s arts tax credit visit www.actionplan.gc.ca/eng/media.asp?id=4114>.
