ONLINE-ONLY: Annual Earth Day Children’s Art Show: Web of Life

Please Note: Unfortunately, this year’s physical exhibition is cancelled due to ongoing concerns surrounding Covid-19.  From a strong sense of obligation to protect the health and well-being of our employees, members and customers, we have made the decision to temporarily close the Coast Collective Art Centre effective March 18.  However, we will be showcasing artwork and stories as part of an Online-Only Exhibition through our website and social media channels.  More details coming soon!


View the Web of Life gallery – Our Annual Earth Day Children’s Art Show


This Earth Day, we invite the region’s youngest artists (up to age 12) to explore the variety of creatures that make up the Web of Life on our planet.  Artwork can explore local or foreign ecosystems, and can focus on individual plants or animals and their place in the great web of life, or on entire connected systems.

Open call gallery exhibition for children up to age 12.

The region’s youngest artists are invited to submit artwork to celebrate  EARTH DAY! Individual artists, groups and classes (school or rec centre) are encouraged to take part in this opportunity to show off your creativity.  This show will welcome a wide variety of work celebrating the connections that bind all of life on earth together.


Digital Image Deadline: April 8

Create paintings, drawings, sculptures from clay, or mix things up with various materials, then submit online on our website or via email to  Please also send us the story behind your artwork! If you have an idea and aren’t sure if it fits, just email to check!  We are also happy to help you brainstorm, and with over 100 artist members, we have lots of ideas to share.
