Art Together

Art Together participants show off their arm-knitted creations made with local artist Karen Cancino

Make art and share your ideas! If you’re a young person, the Gallery wants your help planning upcoming projects, programs, and events. This is a unique opportunity to design the type of art activities you envision, and to create do-it-together art projects with mentoring artists. Come enjoy some food, meet new friends, and make a difference in your community.

Contact Charis at to get involved.

All events are free and happen on a Tuesday at Surrey Art Gallery unless otherwise noted.

Date Time Activity
Jul 11 5:30-9pm Cool down, enjoy food, and create collaborative art at our Sizzling Art Bash planned and led by the Art Together team. Make a clay landscape with ceramics artist Carly Mucha, a large-scale drawing with mixed media artist Tomoyo Ihaya, and cardboard beach balls with the Community Art Program. There will be food, music, and more!
Aug 15 7-9pm

What other types of programs do young people want? If you're a youth or young adult, come brainstorm with us for this feedback session to plan what’s in store for Art Together in the fall!
