Tickets & Pricing


As the home of the largest school district in British Columbia, Surrey hosts a wealth of creative talent. Art by Surrey Secondary School Students celebrates the skills and imaginations of over fifty artists through drawings, paintings, collages, photographs, and prints. Each student tells meaningful stories about who they are in a complex world. Teacher statements share connections to curricular competencies that informed the artmaking process. These texts reveal how art education promotes personal growth, critical engagement, and empathy. 

Since 1983, Surrey Art Gallery has hosted an annual exhibition showcasing the creativity of students in Surrey School District’s art education programs. The exhibits also demonstrate the value of art education in the BC School curriculum. The Surrey School District and the Surrey Art Teachers Association develop the exhibits in partnership with Surrey Art Gallery.
