4Cats Art Studio founder Joey Simon and her son Jet developed their fun and educational art program in 2005 while transposing the techniques they learned in a library's collection of art history books onto blank canvases. Since then, their process of teaching students about an artist's method and then allowing them to practice it on their own has expanded throughout North America. The studio draws its name from Els Quatre Gats, or The Four Cats, a café in Barcelona where Pablo Picasso often showcased his work and shared intellectual musings with cats.
Much like the legendary brush wielder, students between the ages of 2–15 expand their creative abilities at 4Cats Art Studio, first discussing famous artists and then using their techniques to create original pieces. Each 60-minute class begins with a history lesson on a famous artist such as Frida Kahlo or Paul Klee, followed by a creative project using the featured artist's techniques. After learning about Frida's life and love of animals, students create their own colourful self-portraits. Likewise, classes on Klee integrate music and colour-mixing techniques to teach students how to truly capture the emotions of a trumpet.

Pet Planet avidly supports Kali's Wish Cancer Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to eradicating cancer in animals, as well as the Guardian Movement, which encourages humans to call themselves pet guardians instead of owners to create more empathic person-and-animal relationships.
Kids love building things almost as much as they love destroying things. A stack of blocks is a crash waiting to happen, just as cupcake batter is an aerial missile waiting on a mold. Herein lies the genius of Legos: kids may build, then they must disassemble––funneling children's capacity for creativity. Bricks 4 Kidz organizes this interlocking rise and fall of Lego bricks with diverse programs and events. Whether it's an afterschool, pre-school, or in-school program, they help kids trigger their imagination with not just Legos, but with stories and learning opportunities. Special themed bricks cast kids into outer space or onto the sets of their favorite movies and video games. For more advanced activities, kids can create stop-motion animation or junior robots.

Kelowna Rock School started off as something of a pipe dream for its owners. But the music school didn't fly under the radar for very long after opening in 2006.

Today, that music still spans almost every genre, from rock and metal to pop and country, and instruments ranging from the drums, guitar, bass, and keyboard to students' own vocal cords.
