Welcome to Art & You Inc. Arts Centre in Grimsby, ON


2021/22 Class Registrations Now Open

Join us this year at the Centre for various art programming and workshops.


Let’s Create Together

Welcome to our new space in downtown Grimsby, where we offer a wide selection of creative options for people of all ages. Try something new with us!

Studio Classes & Workshops

We offer a wide variety of classes and workshops for people of all ages. Whether you’re interested in an introduction to artistic techniques, or want to expand a drawing practice in a life drawing class, we have something for you. All interests and skill levels are welcomed at Art & You Inc.

School Visits

Connect students to ideas and art from cultures throughout history and around the world through the Art & You Inc. Arts Centre field trips. Our programs are connected to the Ontario Curriculum and linked to 21st century competencies. School field trips are led by dedicated and high calibre educators, who engage students through inquiry and hands-on learning experiences.

Drop In Art Centre

With an emphasis on physical activity, an interactive exhibition is one that encourages physical participation on the part of visitors. Both children and adults are drawn to these interactives and make use of them. Our Drop In interactive exhibition is something that brings to the experience more than just visual information. Elements of it can be touched, smelled, felt, heard, or manipulated in some way and it provides some kind of information or invokes feelings that cannot be had by simply viewing a thing.

Birthday Parties

When it comes to planning your child’s birthday party, coming up with a unique idea is a fun and exciting way to get everyone enthusiastic about the celebration! Our children’s birthday parties are engaging and always leave a lasting impression! We offer many artistic choices and can customize our projects to meet your needs or party theme.
We also help you share all the important details of the event conveniently in one place, making the process simple for both you and your guests.

Our Gallery Space

Art & You Inc. Arts Centre hosts a small gallery space in the front of the centre for artists to showcase and sell their work. The gallery work changes regularly to highlight the vast talents of the many artists we have living and working in the Niagara Region and beyond. The gallery is open six days a week for exhibition viewings.

Gift Shop

Our gift shop offers art related gifts and souvenirs. Items sold include fun artist figurines, arts and craft kits, coffee mugs, stuffed animals, t-shirts, postcards, handmade collections and other souvenirs. Our gift shop also features the work of a number of local artists and our artists keep 100% of their sales.

Whether you’re a local or a tourist passing through, we encourage you to visit to support our artists, and check out our great collection of keepsakes and unique gift options.
