Art Together

Doing a collaborative painting with local artist Jim Adams

Make art, meet friends, and share your ideas!

This is a unique opportunity to create do-it-together art projects and learn a range of art media shoulder-to-shoulder with emerging to established mentoring artists. If you’re a young person, the Gallery wants your help planning upcoming projects, programs, and events too! Free drop-in, everyone welcome.

Join us every other Tuesday at Surrey Art Gallery unless otherwise indicated.
