Artists for Kids and Gordon Smith Gallery
Artist for Kids and Gordon Smith Gallery is a unique, self-sustaining art education venture supported by the North Vancouver School District in British Columbia. In partnership with more than 50 of Canada's most prominent artists, Artists for Kids brings educators and the community together to provide inspiring, highly relevant educational experiences and enrichment for thousands of young people annually while encouraging students to pursue and share their artistic voice and narrative. Through the Gordon Smith Gallery of Canadian Art, established as Canada's first public art gallery for young audiences, Artists for Kids has created a space for young audiences and our community to experience Canadian art's narrative through a significant collection of visual art. As a visual arts catalyst in the community, Artists for Kids is proud to contribute to developing a rich cultural aesthetic. In addition, the Gordon Smith Gallery provides a destination and a resource for gallery education and the development of artistic visual literacy, which is essential to enhancing culture and a greater understanding of the world.
The continued growth and development of our acclaimed program in North Vancouver during the past three decades provides substantial documentation that intentional art education in schools led by art specialists can significantly transform young lives, inform programming in schools and ultimately shape a community in ways once thought unimaginable. We see what can be accomplished and possible in public education with intentional commitment, understanding and engagement.
