Youth Art + Culture Lab is an exciting partnership between Emily Carr University and Richmond Art Gallery, providing youth aged 12–15 an opportunity to build confidence and develop diverse creative skills to develop a varied portfolio using many different art mediums and techniques.  Students learn through behind the scenes, hands-on and interactive sessions with local and international artists, art gallery professionals and Emily Carr instructors. Final session concludes with a small student exhibition hosted in the Richmond Cultural Centre.

Youth Art + Culture Lab meets twice a month from October to April, with breaks for winter and spring break holidays. These Sunday sessions run 1:00pm to 4:00pm PST and alternate between the Richmond Art Gallery and Emily Carr University.
Youth Art + Culture Lab 2021-2022 is expected to be delivered in a hybrid format, with sessions taking place online and in person. Emily Carr University and the Richmond Art Gallery are committed to offering meaningful art education to youth and teens, and invite students to expand their understanding of art, grow their skill-sets and develop their portfolio through YACL. As always, this dynamic and engaging program will be delivered to the highest educational standard, and instructed by award-winning artists and designers.
