The Art Gallery of Greater Victoria is located on the traditional territories of the Lekwungen peoples, today known as the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations. We extend our appreciation for the opportunity to live and learn on this territory.
Join us in the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria's (AGGV) Studio where our dedicated instructors introduce new techniques, build confidence and encourage the creative process. Students will experience a full "art immersion", visiting current gallery exhibitions to inspire their creation in the studio.
Registration for Winter Studio Classes on now!
