Clay Sculptures

Ignite your curiosity. Clayton Arts is a creative hub for performing, visual, and woodworking arts. Come make art with your community.

Art making spaces at Surrey’s newest multi-purpose community centre include a 2 story visual arts studio, performing arts studio, 4 sound-proof music studios, wood working studio and exhibition spaces. 

We're excited to welcome you with a limited selection of low-risk, modified activities. Watch for more programming and amenities becoming available throughout the year.

Visual Arts Classes

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 classes offerings, please contact Visual Arts Programmer Kaytee Kilgour at
