OPEN ART STUDIO - Self-led Drop-in Art Sessions

Are you an artist? Do you want to connect and learn with other artists in the community? The City of Pitt Meadows is excited to offer a free drop-in, twice a month at the South Bonson Community Centre. We welcome artists (adults 16+ years) from beginners to those more experienced who are passionate about visual arts and want to work, learn, share and engage with other like-minded people in the community!

Please bring your own supplies. Tables and chairs will be provided. This is a self-led drop-in session, set-up/tear down and clean-up is expected by those that attend. 

Throughout the year, we invite professional artists to lead workshops as part of our Open Art Studio. These subsidized workshops offer an opportunity for artists to explore other mediums, further develop their skills, and be inspired in their artistic journey as an artist. These workshops require pre-registration, as space is limited. Note: On workshop days, there will be NO regular drop-in sessions.

*To register for these Feature Artist Workshops, call 604.465.2470, visit the Pitt Meadows Family Recreation Centre or register online at

Drop-ins and workshops will take place on the first Tuesday morning and the third Wednesday evening of every month. Please check the dates and locations in the schedule below.
