Artist Professional Development & Professional Practice Workshops

These workshops further the practice of contemporary art by offering opportunities for artists who wish to enhance their skills and knowledge in creativity, business, or technical areas. The workshops are led by respected artists, art educators, and arts administrators. Instructors have come from the Lower Mainland, Canada, the United States, and Australia.

Participant and instructor input is sought and incorporated into workshop content and scheduling. Email the Visual Art Programmer with your suggestions.

Thursday Artist Talks

This free program of illustrated talks and demonstrations by local and regional artists is organized by the Surrey Art Gallery Association.

Taking place on the first Thursday of the month from September to June, this program provides an opportunity for artists to expose their work and ideas to the public. The public gets a chance to see work in a variety of media by artists in their communities. The talks are followed by conversation over coffee.
