From a few hours to a few days, taking a short course or artist’s workshop can alter your life. BC has called out to and nurtured the hearts of countless artists. Inspired by the land and sea, or perhaps some indefinable quality, every corner of the province holds artists’ studios.

Many people have come away from an afternoon workshop emboldened and inspired, and embark on new artistic pursuits or even new ways of life.
