Gifts for the culturally minded

November 05, 2012

As we all know, the Christmas season is around the corner. To help you get a jump on the coming gift giving season, we?ve created a list of a few local, eco-friendly ideas for the arts-inclined in your life.

2013 Vancouver Children’s Festival – GIFT CERTIFICATES
Give your favourite family an experience to remember with a day at the Kids? Fest! Our gift certificates come in denominations of $18 each or $65 for a four-pack. They can be redeemed for tickets to a featured performance, which includes full access to our creative activity zones. Talk about a great stocking stuffer! Simply call the Festival office at 604.708.5655 to purchase using VISA or MasterCard.

TICKETS to Carousel Theatre
This theatre company for young people has drama classes for children and a series of outstanding professional productions including this year’s holiday show The Wizard of Oz.

CLASSES with Arts Umbrella
Sign the kids up for a professionally taught drama, dance or visual arts classes to start in January.

FAMILY MEMBERSHIP to the Vancouver Art Gallery
The gallery has a wonderful series of children?s programs including Art Agents, Art Tracks and The Making Place. 

The gift of MUSIC
You can’t go wrong with CDs for the little ones. Fred Penner, Bobs & Lolo, Will Stroet, Charlotte Diamond and Eric Litwin (AKA Pete the Cat) are all popular with young children, and they?re all
Festival veterans.

ART supplies
Have a budding artist in your midst? You’ll find everything you need from brushes and scrapbooks to an enormous variety of paints for all ages at Opus.
