The Vancouver Island School of Art (VISA) has announced they will be relocating its operation to downtown Victoria.

The school will be moving from its current location at 950 Kings Road to 733 Johnson Street at the end of May.

VISA was established in 2004 and more than 4,000 people have taken courses or workshops during this time. Since May 2020, they have offered online art courses for those who prefer to learn from home during the pandemic.

As part of the move, there will be an art supply sale on May 15th between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. at its Kings Road location.

The school has already listed some items for sale on its Facebook page.

VISA moved to its current Kings Road location from its former campus on Quadra street several years ago.

VISA chose its new, smaller location at Maynard Court due to COVID-19’s impact on classroom sizes.
