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 company that offers both a gallery and working art studio at two locations. Monika Blichar, Founder and Owner, is the creative mind behind our gallery and art studio programs. With over 16 years teaching experience as well as 12 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 pieces by artists from around the world. Monika is passionate about creativity and imagination and strives to offer visitors and students alike to believe that anything is possible.
Our gallery 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 gallery is located at Park Royal Mall in West Vancouver, BC.
Our working studio on Upper Lonsdale in North Vancouver is consistently bustling with 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.
