this is the place to get you out of bed in the morning

We specialize in bright, imaginative classes for adults, youth and kids in painting, photography and film. We also host the loveliest parties and team building events in our radiant studio. Such lovely people turn out right here to 'make' things - a hopeful  entrance, a new friend, something beautiful.  One of the nicest things about hanging out here is that you are destined to experience dramatically increased happiness levels. We can flip your energy in the most wonderful way!

What's that, creating is easy, fun and happy? Yes, yes it is:)

๐Ÿ’› Hey Summer, we've been eyeing you for a long long time. We created a few new camps! (As *if* we wouldnโ€™t.) Not surprising, still exciting. A bunch of sun soaked, warmhearted beauts, right here.  Also! If a camp is not full, you are welcome for a drop in for a day, or two or three.

๐Ÿ’› Adorable/cute/clever/well-shot! Oh, hello - just LOOK at our wonderful new Beautiful Beginner's e course for kiddos!

๐Ÿ’› Madelyn teaches creative classes for Kate McCabe at the Self Design Centre and our studio also hosts field trips and workshops for several schools for the Vancouver School Board. We have created workshops/curriculum for the Vancouver Art Gallery, corporations, School boards and UBC /outdoor festivals.  

๐Ÿ’› We also run workshops for teachers to ignite their programming in the arts for their classrooms. Call to chat and create a workshop with us.

๐Ÿ’› The Luminous Elephant was supremely thrilled to  collaborate with the Vancouver Art Gallery to bring lively workshops in Conceptual Photography to the art igniting Family Fuse weekend.  Let's create together if you are an organization that would love to feature our popular workshops.

๐Ÿ’› Holy doodles! So many kiddos born in the Autumn! We are booking birthday parties and looking forward to beautiful celebrations.

๐Ÿ’› Team love is  sprouting everywhere - we are taking bookings for corporate team building and private events. A little nonsense now and then, is cherished by the wisest men :) (Road Dahl)

๐Ÿ’› Photo Walk anyone? We have the most beautiful private and group photo tours of Vancouver - bring your camera and get Snappy! We also offer private Urban Drawing tours of Granville Island with illustrator Dino Pai.


hey, weโ€™re excited!
