Bright Lights Open Studio

  • Salvation Army, Drop-In Centre 601 Vernon Street Nelson, BC Canada (map)


Tuesdays and Wednesdays
1:30 to 4:30pm

Everyone is welcome to join this free, safe, and warm studio space at the Nelson Salvation Army hosted by experienced art therapist, Kate Leppard and her amazing team. You don’t need to be an artist or have any experience. 

Bright Lights offers a mix of artist-guided projects and spontaneous art making - all using high-quality art materials. We will hold quarterly art exhibitions across Nelson, with a chance to sell what you’ve made! 

The studio is yours to create whatever you feel inspired to make. Bring your ideas and we will support you!

For more info, contact Kate Leppard by email ( or phone: (250)352-2264 x209

This event is a collaboration between KATI and The Salvation Army and made possible with funding from the BC Division of the Salvation Army and The Columbia Basin Trust.
