In-person art classes, workshops return to Chilliwack Cultural Centre – Chilliwack Progress – Chilliwack Progress

Published

 on


The doors of the Chilliwack Cultural Centre are open once again for artsy folk to take in-person classes and workshops.

From pottery to mixed media to photography, summer art classes are returning to the centre, along with open clay studio times.

Mixed Media Workshop is a class that will take people through numerous mixed media techniques to create a unique masterpiece in a single afternoon.

For those looking to go more in-depth to the world of mixed media art, Art Journaling will walk folks through the steps of creating a colourful, interactive art journal that is the perfect way to express themselves through art.

Beginning Photography will guide those with new cameras through how to use them. This class will explain the basics of composition, exposure, camera settings and even the different types of photography. It’s a great first step in starting a journey with photography.

For pottery enthusiasts, there a workshop called Make Clay Handles to learn new creative ways to do just that.

For those who have taken a pottery class at the centre, the Clay Open Studio is once again up and running. These studio sessions allow people to continue developing their skills independently by giving them a space to practice on the wheel, hand-building, or finish work started in class. Spots available within the open studio are limited, and registration is required.

While both pottery classes – Wheel 1: Intro to Wheel and Wheel 2: Beyond Basic Wheel – have already sold out, the box office offers a waitlist for the fall classes for those enthusiastic about learning to use the wheel to make stunning pieces of pottery.

Physical distancing protocols are in place for these classes.

For more information or to register for a class, visit www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca, call 604-391-SHOW(7469), or stop by The Centre Box Office (9201 Corbould Street, Chilliwack).

Windsor Public Library wants to show you local art while you ride your bike – CBC.ca

Published

 on


Windsor Public Library wants to showcase the city’s downtown art. It plans to have two cycling tours to show it off.

Becky Mayer, a librarian at the Windsor Public Library organized the tours. She said the main reason she wanted to do this is because people think there’s nothing to do or see in Windsor.

“I often ride my bike around and I see a lot of cool and weird stuff,” said Mayer. “So, I just thought that maybe a few people would want to join me on a weird stuff tour.”

Mayer said she’ll be bringing Betty the Bookmobile along for the journey. She said the ride will be pretty casual and if someone has a story to tell she’s happy to give them space to share.

“I’m fine with talking as well. If you want to have a silent tour, that’s also cool. Like, it’s very, very casual. Go with the flow. We’ll see what happens,” Mayer said.

The first tour starts at 6 p.m. August 16, the second tour is on August 20 starting at 10 a.m. The tours last about an hour and starts at the library’s Central Branch at the corner of Ouellette Avenue and Pitt Street.
