SUMMER ART CAMPS

Register early and get a jump start on your summer plans with two very exciting programs for children and youth at the Rollin Art Centre.
‘Journey to the Castle of Creativity’ is the title for our art programs for children ages 7-12, every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday during the months of July and August.
Each week is a different medium, from drawing to painting, sculpting and fabric art. What a great way to have fun while learning new techniques and making new friends! Call 250-724-3412 to register.
The Rollin Art Centre will hold Novelty Creative Writing Programs for youth ages 10-15.
All sessions will be following the theme of ‘Journey to the Castle of Creativity,’ focusing on the cultivation of imagination, risk-taking, questioning and experimenting. The emphasis is on the journey: all writers will be encouraged to try new things or twist what is already familiar.
Call the Rollin Art Centre for more info on dates and themes for each week. There are two options for pricing: $15 per session, per writer or $75 for all six sessions.
Join us in the garden on Sunday, July 15 from 12-5 p.m. for an afternoon of ’50s music, from rock and roll to country.
Local musicians will be on hand to entertain you while dancing and dressing in your favourite ’50s outfit. Hot dogs and chili will be available. We are also looking for ‘50-60s style cars to be parked on the grounds to add that touch of old style rock and roll…sock-hop style. If you have a vehicle and would like to showcase it, please call us today for more details.
