Inspiring young people to discover their individual voice and build creative confidence through expression of the arts.
About our Charity
Arts Umbrella is where young artists ages 2 to 19 cultivate creativity through Performing, Visual, and Media Arts programs. As a non-profit organization, we believe that art is powerful. Powerful enough to change the lives of kids in incredible ways. When young people connect with the arts, they gain self-confidence, develop self-discipline, and discover creative expression – things they carry with them for life. Art comes in many forms, so Arts Umbrella inspires creativity through painting, drawing, music, photography, theatre, dance, architecture, media arts, and more in our four Vancouver and Surrey locations. We’re especially proud of our free-of-charge community programs, which bring the arts to those who may not be able to afford it. Arts Umbrella fosters a place with no creative limits, and for kids, creativity means possibilities.
