Isabella's watercolour painting

Vancity Uncovered Art and Music Gala

One of the perks of studying in an English school in Vancouver is to come across different cultures, because 40% of the total population is made up by imigrants. If you like art, then Vancouver is the spot for you! We’ve got you covered. Vancity Uncovered Art & Music Gala is taking place on Saturday May 11th starting at 5 PM at the Chinese Cultural Center. The event will be full of art, music, and food for everyone. One of our talented students, Isabella Restrepo, will be showcasing her works there. She is a great watercolor painter. You can check out her masterpieces on Instagram @isavilla2002. In case you want to attend, please go to the website and get your tickets online. The tickets cost around $20 each. Stay tuned on our blog for more events to come. Also, don’t forget to share your experience here in Vancouver with us using the hashtag #ecexperience on Instagram and tag us @ec_vancouver.

Check out the Vancouver Art Gallery!

If you want to do more than just Study English in Canada and have a great experience in the city, you should check the Vancouver Art Gallery, the fifth-largest art gallery in Canada and the largest in Western Canada. Founded in 1931 and located in the former main courthouse for Vancouver, the gallery hosts great exhibitions, like the one about Picasso’s muses presented last year. Besides that, its permanent collection contains more than 10,000 artworks, mostly by local artists. The price range is about CAD$6.19 to $52.38. Also, they offer the admission “pay what you can” on Tuesdays, which means you can pay whatever you think is valuable to check the exhibitions. To check what’s going on there, go to the VAG website.
