Grow your creativity through visual art. Clayton Community Centre offers a range of learning programs for all ages, skills and abilities. Children’s art camps run through this summer. Registered courses will start in the fall. 

The Visual Art Studio is a large space that specializes in community art. This is a type of art-making that focuses on bringing people together. Imagine working on large parade puppets with your neighbours. Or think of working with one of our artists in residence, adding to a creative project that responds to a community need.

If you have any questions about our visual art course offerings, please contact Visual Arts Programmer Kaytee Kilgour at Kaytee.Kilgour@surrey.ca.
