Some exciting news! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Rollin Art Centre is going virtual.
Join us online for this year’s Summer Arts Program for children aged five to 15. This free online program will feature videos, including tutorials, prompts, ideas and guided crafts from July 6 to August 28. Learn drawing, creative writing, sculpture, painting and more.
The full summer schedule will be released in June. Follow us at www.alberniarts.com for more information and to stay connected creatively.
VIRTUAL GALLERY AND GIFT SHOP
Stay tuned! The Rollin Art Centre will soon be joining you virtually.
Staff is currently working hard on opening virtual art exhibits so that all our art exhibits will be featured online. If you are unable to make any upcoming artists’ openings, you won’t have to miss it.
We have an amazing collection of local artists and you will soon be able to view their art exhibits from home. We are also working on creating an online gallery gift shop. We will keep you posted!
We want to see what you’ve been doing.
Send us a video of yourself and a project that you are currently working on (or that you have completed) and we will share it on our Facebook page.
Get some creative ideas by tuning into our Rollin Art Centre’s Facebook Page. Get your mom or dad to help take a video or photo of you creating art work and send it to Melissa at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t forget to give us written permission, otherwise we won’t be able to post it.
