Since 1986 the ArtSpace program has provided arts instruction to both young and old in the North Peace region. Starting in the basement of a downtown business, the line to register for classes stretched a city block on our very first day.  With the growth of the City of Fort St. John since then there has continued to be a strong desire to explore the arts in all formats including visual arts (drawing, painting, sculpture, photography), performing arts (dance, theatre, standup comedy), language arts (poetry, art journaling, second languages), and culinary arts (cooking, cake decorating, chocolate making).  We hope you will enjoy the classes we have to offer.  Please let us know if there is a subject that you would like to learn.  Or maybe you would like to share your art with others.
