Mission Statement:

Art Zone Sun Peaks is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to stimulate, encourage, educate, support and develop artistic and cultural projects and activities in the Sun Peaks Region.

Thanks to the companies identified below for their continued interest and support of our events and programs.

Wildflower Workshops

On March 18th ArtZone presented "Taste of Art"... a unique art show/event where visitors could sit down with artists and either watch a demonstration of how they work, or participate in creating some of their own work with the artist.  The event was well-attended and feedback was positive.  

HUGE THANK YOU to Amanda McKichan, Leslie Albert and Jay Thomas from the Sun Peaks Grand who worked hard alongside us to make this event a success.
