What to do in Vancouver: Explore Your Creative Side at Palette

You may have noticed that we’ve been all about Spring Break this week at That’s because many Vancouver moms (including pretty much everyone on our team) is gearing up for two weeks with no school. Why should kids have all the fun, though? We can’t think of a single reason. If you’re wondering what to do in Vancouver for a great girls night out, we have a suggestion. Place des Arts in Coquitlam is presenting a new event on March 15, 2014 at 7:30pm. Palette … eat, paint, create! features tapas, wine, and paint and canvas, in a relaxed and social environment.

Getting Creative is What to do in Vancouver

If it’s been too long since you’ve done anything creative for yourself, this evening may be the answer. The organizers promise to help you unleash your inner artist. Gather with friends and do something a little out of the ordinary. You may discover a long-hidden talent, or you may just have a good time chatting and creating in a non-threatening environment. Place des Arts believes everyone has an inner artist just waiting to get out. Palette is what to do to find out what your own inner artist is up to these days.

Place des Arts Executive Director Joan McCauley says, “Palette furthers our mandate to make art accessible to everyone in a unique and enjoyable way. We want to encourage people of the local community to explore their artistic side, and to realize that you don’t have to be an artist to be creative and imaginative. All you need is a little paint, a canvas and a willingness to be bold.”

But What About the Food?what to do in vancouver place des arts

You may recall that we mentioned tapas. The menu features a charcuterie plate, a selection of fine cheeses, warmed olives, artisan breads and crackers, a fruit plate and, for a little sweetness, assorted petit fours. There’s also a cash bar offering red wine, white wine and beer. If you have special dietary restrictions you’re encouraged to contact Events Coordinator Michael Fera at 604.664.1636 and he’ll see what he can do.

While Palette is geared towards adults it is an all-ages event. If you have a teenager who would enjoy an evening creating, or you can’t find a sitter, you can bring your kids along. There’s really no reason not to add this event to your list of what to do in Vancouver if it tickles your fancy. Tickets are $25 per person, or save by buying two for $40. You can get yours online at or by calling at 604.664.1636. To find out more about Place des Arts, visit
