About VERNON COMMUNITY ARTS CENTRE
The Vernon Community Arts Centre operated by the Arts Council of the North Okanagan and is located in Polson Park, Vernon's premiere municipal park. The Centre currently houses professionally equipped studios where we offer an exciting roster of creative art programs, taught by highly qualified instructors, in a variety of disciplines, for adults and children. We also have drop-in studio sessions, open to individuals who want to work in a studio environment.
The Vernon Community Arts Centre would not be complete without its volunteers. The staff at VCAC would like to acknowledge and extend their sincere thanks and gratitude to all those who donate their time, talent and skills to the Arts Centre.
