Children, art and summer; what better combination?

Summer art programs, clay workshops and more on the Alberni arts scene.

The Rollin Art Centre invites children aged seven to 12 years to participate in our summer art programs.

Camps run every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday beginning at 12:30 p.m. and run until 3:30 p.m., featuring a new theme each week.

These summer art programs promise a creative outlet children need and enjoy. Our wonderful summer student, Tess, has planned fun activities that integrate art with learning. Check out the full summer lineup on our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/rollinartcentre.
