Creative Edge has been offering art classes for children in Abbotsford since 1991.
Our art lessons consist of instruction in many different art forms such as: drawing, painting, sewing, clay modeling, print making, cartooning, mixed media and more!
In addition, art students will have a chance to learn about, and make projects in the style of, great artists of the past and present such as; Vincent Van Gogh, Frida Kahlo, Frank Stella and Ted Harrison. For example, in June, the art classes learned about Jackson Pollock and created very fun, and messy, splatter paintings!
Students will get a chance to have their artwork shown on a rotating display board where it can be enjoyed by hundreds of students, parents and staff! We will also select an "Art Student of the Month" each month and have a special display just for them!
The program is available for 6 age groups as well as occasional adult art workshops!
Mini Art (Preschool ages 3-4)
Mini Art (Kindergarten ages 4-6)
Young at Art (age 5-7)
Junior Art (age 8-10)

We also offer two new specialized art classes:

WHAT PARENTS ARE SAYING
"I have 3 children and we have been going to Creative Edge for nearly 3 years in both art and dance programs.
All 3 of my kids have loved the art program and I love it too - I was surprised at the amount of techniques that were taught as well as how much fun they had doing it.
My son is always using what he learned in class to create art projects at home- such as memory books of events that are important to him. Their teachers at school have commented on how creative they are and advanced in their artwork.
During an art summer camp, they were so excited to show off an art show of the work they had created during the week.
We love the staff - all of the teachers and reception staff make you feel welcome and part of the Creative Edge family."
Mrs V. Abbotsford, BC
Stephanie graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Victoria in April 2012. During her time at UVic she studied Visual Arts, Art History, Art Education and Psychology, with a focus on child development.
She began teaching art at Creative Edge 10 years ago and has been the art instructor here for a total of 6 years. She taught for two years before going away to school in Victoria, and happily returned in 2012. Stephanie has also taught adults and children at The Paint Box School of Art and instructed several adult art workshops at The University of Victoria.
She teaches art with patience and an open mind and believes that art class should be just as fun as it is instructional.
As the Executive Director for Creative Edge, Stephanie doesn't have much free time, but when she does she enjoys spending it with friends and family traveling, reading, dancing and eating guacamole.
Stephanie is excited to have Karly Bakker and Maria Van Ewyk join her in the art department as teachers of Pre-K Mini Art and Painting, respectively.
