About Monika's Art Boutique
"Our goal is to allow our guests to experience imagination, creativity and possibility. We want all our guests to feel like they can do, be and see the impossible through imagination, inspiration and all the colours of creativity." - Monika Blichar, Owner
Monika's Art Boutique is a unique space comprised of a boutique gallery and working art studio in one beautifully inspiring space! Monika Blichar, Founder and Owner, is the creative mind behind our retail boutique and art programs. With over 15 years teaching experience as well as 10 years as a creative entrepreneur, Monika offers an array of ways for children and adults alike to express themselves as well as enjoy, purchase and collect unique artisan items. Monika is passionate about creativity and imagination. She strives to offer a space to help visitors and students alike to believe that anything is possible and that creativity is within all of us.
Our boutique is host to over 50 artists and designers including visual artists, jewellers, fashion designers as well as British Columbia Native Artists mainly from the Squamish Nation. We love to find unique items and make them available to customers as gift ideas or as additions to collections for art collectors. As all of our artists are constantly creating new pieces, our selection of merchandise is always changing and being updated particularly to suit each season.
Our working studio is consistently bustling with working artists, arts programs and specialty workshops. We offer programming for children and adults including painting, jewellery making, fashion workshops and specialty workshops led by local artists and creative professionals. We also offer kids art camps during summer, winter and spring break as well as after school classes year round.
