Join us Wednesday afternoons to make art and be creative with a rad group of youths!
Each week, participants have the opportunity to learn about new mediums and techniques. Guided by one of our art instructors and our teen intern, participants will be encouraged to become more comfortable with various materials and styles to open new doors of creativity.

We are a safe space that welcomes EVERYONE aged 13 to 23.

This program was created by the KAG Summer Interns and is generously sponsored by the Edwina and Paul Heller Memorial Fund with the Vancouver Foundation.

Are you up to the challenge of creating a brilliant masterpiece in 60 seconds or less--while blindfolded and in costume? You could be our next Art Duel champion!

This year, we challenge you to come as your feminist Utopian alter-ego and battle against the patriarchy for a better world (and to win an exhibition). Participants will be judged on their costumes, performances and their artwork. The winner will be awarded a solo exhibition on our Open Gallery, and has the honour of taking home a magnificent trophy to display on their mantle.

Not interested in participating? Perhaps you'd rather judge? Or heckle? We need plenty of each. Free snacks and a cash bar will be available throughout the event.

Art Duel has space for 8 competitors. Register early to ensure your place in the competition. Visit the Gallery or call 250.377.2400.
