Richmond Art Gallery and Richmond Public Art Program host this 3-week program that culminates in a group public art installation at Minoru Park for Culture Month celebrations in September 2020.

Developed for art students who are inspired by nature and the environment, this summer art program focuses on outdoor explorations to develop a public art project that will be installed in Minoru Park in the fall of 2020. The program will be hosted online at home 4 days a week, and 1 day a week at an outdoor public park with social distancing protocols in place.

Program highlights:

  • Explore your environment with a series of guided walks at parks and at home to inspire new ways of art-making.
  • Try a variety of art methods and materials, with a focus on drawing, photography, sculpture and digital art.
  • Build your resume with a public art piece installed at Minoru Park that includes payment of professional artist fees for exhibiting your work.
  • Learn from a community of artists and arts professionals who will mentor you through the process of creating an artwork for public display.

Program is limited to 12 participants. Participants will be selected through a juried process by submitting 3 artwork samples and a written statement of why they want to be in the program. Richmond residents will be given priority.

Selected participants meet regularly Monday-Friday from 1:00 – 3:00 pm both online and in person. Regular attendance is required.

Program is free, with most art materials provided. Participants will receive a box of supplies through socially distanced pickup at the first outdoor session.  No art materials or tools will be shared, students receive their own materials.



The Richmond Art Gallery has developed a COVID-19 Safety Plan in accordance with  health and safety protocols from the BC government and provincial health officials to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission. On-site sessions will only occur outdoors, where there is less risk of touching shared surfaces and being in close contact with others. Our protocols include: ensuring social distancing among the participants and staff members (2-metres per person based on outdoor considerations); hygiene regulations are in force with hand-washing accessible locations along with hand sanitizers made available at each session; protective gear of masks and gloves are available for participants at each outdoor session; clear, concise communication to staff and participants of all procedures will be delivered before each outdoor session including how to self-assess to ensure any staff or participants who have symptoms will self-isolate.
