Find a place for your child – and your inner child – at White Rock art studio

Expressing your inner child doesn’t always have to be a complicated process. It can be as simple as finding some paints, a canvas and some friends!

After all, as famed artist Bob Ross once said, “We don’t make mistakes. We just have happy accidents.”

It’s a philosophy close to the heart of Jennifer Findlay, who grew up in White Rock and is the owner of Creō Arts Studio – recently nominated for “Best Arts Studio” and “Best Kids Camp” in the Peace Arch News Readers Choice Awards. Findlay helps kids of all ages let loose and express themselves with affordable classes, workshops, drop-in’s and licensed school age camps at her inventive, original and vibrant space.
