Semiahmoo Arts Is Reopening

South Surrey, BC – Semiahmoo Arts Society is delighted to announce that the Society will be officially reopening for in-person classes starting Sept 14, 2020, after closing its doors in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will be open at reduced hours for the remaining of 2020. As part of the re-opening, students will be asked to sign up via the City of Surrey’s Registration system.


As part of the reopening process and keeping with public health protocols, Semiahmoo Arts has implemented additional safety precautions to keep staff, students and instructors safe. These include the required use of non-medical face masks, physical distancing practices, the installation of alcohol-based sanitizing stations as well as daily disinfection of the arts rooms and periodic cleaning of high-touch surfaces.
