Coronavirus Update:

We are slowly & cautiously returning to in studio classes; Amy will begin Tuesday & Thursday morning classes in September. Shimshon continues to work hard at developing lesson plans and filming to create videos for at home lessons. Artists wanting to register for fall classes, please contact us. Cool Arts will continue to release new at home lessons weekly until in studio classes can fully resume. Space in Amy's in studio classes is very limited, so please register early.

Stay safe and healthy everyone, from all of us at Cool Arts.

Please email us at info@coolarts.ca for more information & the links to the classes


I only know that I do what I can to convey what I experience before nature and that most often, in order to succeed in conveying what I feel, I totally forget the most elementary rules of painting, if they exist that is.

- Claude Monet, 1912

The Cool Arts Society is a non-profit charitable organization that is dedicated to providing art opportunities 

to adults with developmental disabilities 


Cool Arts offers classes for adults living with developmental disabilities in the Central Okanagan. Designed to be process oriented and experiential, all activities take place in a safe, student-centered environment where participants can make discoveries in art practice without distraction.


Cool Arts Society could not exist without the support of individuals; and local, provincial, and national granting agencies. 

You too could play a role in the vitality of our programming by donating time, funds, or much needed materials and equipment.

Announcement for the Spring Featured Art show coming soon...


About Us

Cool Arts finally found a permanent home in our eleventh year of operation thanks to generous support from Community Living British Columbia. Our society is located upstairs in Studio 201 in the Rotary Centre for the Arts in the heart of Kelowna's Cultural District. Thank you so much to all of the organizations and individuals who have supported us since 2003. 


Cool Arts hosts a variety of events throughout the year to help showcase the work of our artists, fundraise, and/or to introduce the community to the work we do. Our board members and other volunteers work tirelessly to bring an extraordinary experience to the guests of our events. 


Over the past 15 years Cool Arts artists have shown their work as part of the group at various locations around Kelowna, BC.

One of the biggest accomplishments at Cool Arts was establishing We Are Artists, an exhibition the founder curated in collaboration with the Kelowna Art Gallery in 2009.
