Discover cool seaside art inspired by kids, and created by kids! ALL IMAGES COPYRIGHT OF ROSEMARY HANNA

IMGP7126Rowing, paddling, biking or walking along Vancouver’s beautiful waterfront, ephemeral ‘KIDSART’ is sure to catch your eye.

Children at play by the ocean, children making art out of sea-things, building sandcastles, playing imaginative ‘one-off’ sea-inspired games, or just being kids, while having a jolly good time feeling water and sand running between their toes.

Beyond these home-made experiences, frequent visits to wonderful places like Vancouver Maritime Museum, are sure to delight, enrich and educate the lives of children (all ages)!

Ships, sea creatures, pirate treasures, fun workshops with Museum educators, more ships and shipwrecks, children’s’ choirs singing, sea shanties, stories and videos, Arctic exploration stories with visitors, and more – WHEREVER YOUR IMAGINATION TAKES YOU and beyond.

Take a bigger ferry (seabus) across Burrard Inlet to visit beautiful Waterfront park North Vancouver. Climb up sculptures (mountain sized with mountain backdrops) that warn you 'don't climb' ... and you do if you're ten or so!

'sea-to-sky rainbow' is art isn't it?

‘Sea-to-sky rainbows’  are nature’s artwork in a child’s favorite colors!   Where did Mr. mallard put his dinner, and how many goslings are tucked under Mother goose’s wings?  (over 6) From the art of lost sandy coasts, to rainbow wishes, seaside-sculpture climbers and evening kayakers, or seashell searcher… children will find a way to make it a wonderful one-of-a-kind creation for all to share.

across from Vancouver, there are many more mini and bigger sections of oceanfron seawall, with all kinds of 'wild' and 'tame' life - these two were chatting and gesturing about some important waterfront events at Eagle Harbour.

Along the seawall, all kinds of ‘wild’ and ‘tame’ seaside creatures.
