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 along with beautiful workshops for the contemporary artisan. 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. Come visit, see for yourself! We believe that creating wonderful art should be easy and fun.  

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

💛Please note we we will be closed for the upcoming July long weekend from Saturday to Monday inclusive. (with the exception of a private booked party)  

💛Hey Summer, we've been eyeing you for a long long time. We created a few new camps! (As *if* we wouldn’t.) Not surprising, still exciting. A bunch of beauts, right here. 

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

💛 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. Call us to see if your school is one of them or if you would love to book your own session!

💛  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.

💛 We spy a brightly coloured event! The Luminous Elephant is  supremely gleeful to  collaborate with the Vancouver Art Gallery to bring lively workshops in Conceptual Photography to the art igniting Family Fuse weekend.  Follow the herd to join Fuse festivities on July 29th and July 30th. 

💛 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)

💛  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, we’re excited!
