Your Class is Invited The Ladysmith Waterfront Art Gallery is pleased to invite your class to take part in our classroom programming . The Arts Council of Ladysmith & District (LAC) is committed to supporting, promoting, displaying, presenting and developing art in all its forms in the Community of Ladysmith and surrounding area, and we look forward to greater connections to our community by engaging with students of all ages.
Visit the Gallery LAC displays juried work primarily of Ladysmith and surrounding artists as well as Vancouver Island and Gulf Islands artists. Students will find a mix of renowned professional artists, skilled amateurs and emerging artists exhibiting their art, side by side in twelve thematic shows each year. On the first Saturday of each month, a new themed show opens; so whenever your class visits the gallery, the walls and floors will feature works of art in many media. In April we feature art from Students in our community, university students, and from our Classes.
A gallery visit is a great opportunity for students to see examples of art up-close and in person; students can get inspiration for their own art from the work of local artists. We encourage students to bring a sketchpad or clipboard to quickly draw those images that capture their attention.
Enjoy a Workshop The Ladysmith Waterfront Arts Council is home to a wide variety of skilled artists who work in a number of different media, as well as to experienced instructors. Your students can participate in a workshop designed to ignite their creativity, introduce them to a new media, or further develop their experience and enjoyment of art. participate in a workshop designed to ignite their creativity, introduce them to a new media, or further develop their experience and enjoyment of art.
