Since 1988, the Van Go and Stage Coach programs have provided free visual arts and theatre workshops to Metro Vancouver elementary schools.
Arts Umbrella instructors take creativity-inspiring activities and arts supplies into local elementary schools (with the help of our Van Go and Stage Coach vans). Each elementary class explores a curriculum-relevant topic through Theatre and Visual Arts – experiencing the arts through theatre games, performing, drawing, painting, and more. School children have the chance to embrace diversity, explore artistic expression, and nurture community spirit – all while having fun!
A generation of children have experienced these incredible workshops – directly benefiting from free, high-quality arts programming in their schools.
