When spring break comes around, the Chilliwack Cultural Centre’s Spring Break Art Camps will be overflowing with a spectacular selection of art classes that are sure to inspire and excite your kids. The terrifically fun and wildly diverse classes offer a fantastic opportunity for your child to explore their creative side, and the flexible class schedule is a great fit for those busy schedules.

Running from March 19 – March 29, the Spring Break Art Camps are filled with all kinds of activities that include everything from arts and crafts to performance, music, dance, and even clay classes. The wide selection makes for an excellent match for all kinds of young artists, no matter what their interests.

With 36 classes to pick and choose from, your kids not only have the chance to try new things but to also explore and learn more about the activities they’re already interested in.

For example, there’s Anime Illustration, which explores the incredibly popular style of art and teaches kids how to draw their own characters. For those who enjoy bringing things to life in clay, or just love getting their hands dirty, they can venture into the exciting world of ceramics with Magic Mud and Mud Slingers. A-Pickin’ & A-Grinnin’ and All About Uke offer an opportunity to pick up an instrument and learn the basics, while Cosmic Kids and Darling Disney Crafts are the perfect creative opportunity for those crafty kids in your life.

With a simple class schedule, the Spring Break Art Camps are an easy way to relieve the stress of busy parents and inspire your child’s imagination—make your kids’ spring break something truly special and let them explore their creativity.

Week One camps will run Monday to Friday, Mar, 19 to 23, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m., with supervised breaks. Each day is split into six 65-minute-blocks with four different classes running in each time slot.

Choose one class per time slot, and your child will take part in that activity at that time for the full week. Sign up for a single class, two per day, or for a full week of fun and creativity. Each class within Week One costs $37.50,so registering for a class means your child will get five fantastic and creative sessions for just under $40.

Week Two is shorter, running Monday to Thursday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m., on March 26 to 29, and only costs $30, which gets your child four wondrous sessions.
