Place des Arts inspires the artist in everyone! An established non-profits arts centre and music school in Coquitlam offering high quality arts education since 1972, Place des Arts has classes and lessons for all ages and skill levels—from babies to boomers and from recreational to pre-professional training. Whether you are looking for private or group music lessons, dance classes, visual arts classes, theatre arts classes or creative writing classes, call us today and we’ll help you find the program you’re looking for.
Many classes and lessons run from September to June while others run during fall, winter and spring sessions. We also offer un-paralleled art camps for children during Spring Break, on Pro-D Fridays and over the summer, engaging kids and teens in a variety of visual and performing arts classes.
Connection to the Community
A cultural hub for the Tri-Cities, Place des Arts produces a variety of community and family events and performances, from our Family Day at PdA and our Faculty Performance Series to a Salon Speaker Series, a holiday festival of light and more. Our three gallery spaces house monthly rotating exhibitions by local emerging artists, and our Artisan Shop is stocked with beautiful, hand-crafted, locally made artisan wares.
As part of our mission to inspire the artist in everyone and our core values of providing quality cultural learning experiences and delivering affordable, accessible programming in all artistic disciplines, Place des Arts also offers a free, weeklong multi-disciplinary summer camp called ArtReach to children who would otherwise be unable to access our regular summer art camps. We also offer after-school visual and performing arts classes through our Art à la Carte program, held at elementary and middle schools in Coquitlam.
