Back to School, Back to Creativity

Place Des Arts Coquitlam 2013

It’s no secret that we’re big fans of Place des Arts in Coquitlam. If you’ve never been inside it’s worth dropping by to see the bright, gorgeous interior filled with art, and for a chance to browse their gift shop. While you’re there, you may want to pick up a copy of their 2013/2014 Program Guide. With the kids heading back to school and classes starting up everywhere, this is a great time to take a walk on the creative side and inspire your inner artist.

Place des Arts offers classes and workshops for all ages and abilities, including some that are unique not only to the Tri-Cities, but to the whole of Metro Vancouver. Where else can you study pottery, baroque gilding, weaving and spinning, mask-making, theatre, jewellery-making, music, dance and more under one roof?

Registration is now open for the 2013/2014 year. Popular classes fill up fast, so if there’s something you’ve had your eye on, it’s a good idea to sign up sooner rather than later. With ongoing classes starting the second week in September, there’s no time to lose! For more information on registration visit or call 604.664.1636.

There’s an even better option if you’d like to learn more about what Place des Arts has to offer. They’re offering two free open houses at their facility in September – one for the big kids, and one for the little kids.

The first open house is called Ignite . . . an affair with art!, and it’s just for adults. It’s happening Thursday, September 12, 2013 at 7:00pm. Enjoy fine art, inspiration and a complimentary glass of wine while you discover all that Place des Arts has to offer. Talk to artists and watch teachers demonstrate their skills – then try your own hand at some of the disciplines offered at Place des Arts. You can also enter to win door prizes, plus you’ll get up to $10 off your registration fee if you register for a class or workshop during the open house.

Everyone can stop by the family open house on Saturday, September 14, 2013 at 2:00pm. You and your kids can enjoy fun arts activities, take a tour, participate in hands-on teacher demos, win fabulous door prizes and get a discount on class registration during the event.

Why not take the chance to do something creative this September? You’ll be glad you did!
