Celebrating 26+ years, ArtSea Studio Tour is one of Vancouver Island’s longest running self-guided studio tours. Every year, ArtSea organizes and presents a Spring Studio Tour in June, and a Fall Studio Tour in October, when more than 25 artist studios open their doors to the public. Everyone is welcome to explore and experience the diverse range of talent and treasures that are available on the Saanich Peninsula. Enjoy a day trip or make a weekend of it.
