PIAS is a group of local artists of all ages and experience levels. We hold local workshops twice a month, as well as classes by off-island experts. We also host two gallery shows every year:A Brush With Spring in May, and le petit Salon in November.
In 2020, these were transitioned to mainly online activities. We hope to get back to in-person workshops and shows soon!
Ptarmigan Arts is a registered, charitable arts organization with a mandate to deliver community arts outreach programs (music, theatre, dance and the visual arts). We work to ensure our educational programs are accessible to all. We focus on community building through the arts and work to ensure that our programs are presented in accessible community venues and are readily available to people who are challenged by financial, physical, mental or geographic barriers.
Currently Ptarmigan is concentrating on providing arts programs in the Southern Gulf Islands and Southern Vancouver Island.
As an artist, illustrator, author, educator and inspirational speaker, Sarah brings a unique combination of talent, humour and insight to all of her work. Whether it's illustrations for books or businesses, cover design, travel journals, nature studies or sketching, her creative approach is a delight.
