Welcome to the Vernon Community Arts Centre!

The Vernon Community Arts Centre (VCAC), operated by the Arts Council of the North Okanagan (ACNO), is a community based facility providing a variety of CLASSES and workshops for beginner, intermediate and professional artists of all ages. The VCAC also provides studio DROP IN SESSIONS, allowing for individuals to interact and collaborate. In addition to this, our JOINING HANDS program provides adults living with a disability the opportunity to participate in artistic activities.

The VCAC's CENTRE GALLERY is open to the public and showcases the work of ACNO members. Come visit us today to see all we have to offer! Located in Polson Park, Vernon, BC. To become a member of the ACNO, visit their website.

We'll be having events and activities going on every day, ending off with a Coffee House on Sunday! We are currently looking for performers for the coffee house.
