About LAB

LAB (Language Arts Base) is an art and academic studio space concept for all ages, based in Vancouver BC!

We have many fun programs for small kids, and also a sprinkle for adults (or big kids)! No matter what age, we want to encourage  our students to build wonderful conversations and appreciation for visual arts. We've got such a great multi-cultural community here, so we also want to give our youths more opportunities to learn the fundamentals of English language in a fun and artistic environment. We want to help kids build a portfolio of interests and hobbies that will let them grow into well-rounded individuals as well. 

Our vision is to create a one-of-a-kind space for every one to become confident in art expression. We also believe everyone’s curiosity and originality needs to be nurtured so that all are inspired to learn and do better each and every day!

Messy Jessy says, "Hi!"


I'm Jess Pang (aka Messy Jessy) and founder + atelierista of LAB Studio!

I have always loved expressing my life and words through drawings, paintings and all things crafty since I started walking and talking. I graduated with a Fine Arts degree from University of British Columbia. During my time there, I held some art shows, and really enjoyed connecting with other fellow artists. Afterwards, I moved to Hong Kong, and opened the very first LAB art studio there for several years, and had a great time teaching children English and Art. Now here I am! I get to do it all over again in my beautiful hometown, Vancouver! I am happy to be able to do what I love to do for a living, and that's sharing my love for making art with people. Can't wait to keep creating with you all!
