Folks enjoy catering by Harvest Thyme Fine Foods during last year’s Teas on the Terrace event at the Rollin Art Centre.

After the success of our first, you won’t want to miss our next Tea on the Terrace on Thursday, July 28 with guest musicians; the A.V. Old Time Fiddlers.

Tickets are still available but seating is limited and will sell out quickly.

Join us in the garden when we bring you only two more teas, featuring, Glen Mofford a new musician (easy listening vocals and guitar) on August 11. To close out the summer, Paul Kurucz – The Travelers perform on August 25, which is always a sell out.

Kimberly Kuzma of Harvest Thyme Fine Foods caters the events.

Please purchase your tickets today and help support the Rollin Art Centre with our summer fundraiser. Tickets are $20.

Children’s art camps

Looking for something different for children? To have fun, be creative and make new friends during the summer months?

If you have a child who is aged seven to12 and you are wondering what they can do this summer, we have the perfect solution. Join us in our summer art programs.

Camps run every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday beginning at 10:00 a.m to 12:30 p.m. for ages seven to nine and 1:00-3:30 p.m. for ages 10 to 12 and features a new theme each week.

These summer art programs promise a creative outlet children need and enjoy. Next week’s camp theme is painting.

This is the camp where you can let loose and let your creativity flow onto your canvas.

We are going to test out many different methods of painting, so be sure to wear clothes that can get messy.

Call today for more information and to register, as space is limited. Check out the full summer lineup on our Facebook page; http://www.facebook.com/rollinartcentre. Weekly camps are $40.

Current exhibit

One week left to view our current art exhibit featuring animal portrait pencil artist, Don Bergen.

If you have a love for animals, you will enjoy this showcase of artwork of all types of amazing animals.

“In keeping with the generosity of our community with a heart for giving to charities, I will be donating 10 per cent of any sales of the last week of my show to the S.P.C.A.  I’m hoping this will assist in feeding some of our unwanted animals,” Bergen said. “I hope this will help in some small way.”

Call to all artists

The Community Art Centre has a call to artists for a new project; an adult colouring book. We are currently looking for artists who would like to submit a line drawing (8” X 10”) of local landmarks or something that reminds you of our wonderful Alberni Valley.

These drawings must be done in black and white only and will be juried and published in a colouring book as a fundraiser for the Community Arts Council and the Rollin Art Centre.

For more information and an application, stop by the Rollin Art Centre. Submissions will be accepted until September 13.
