Do your kids love making art? Do they love camping? Are you planning day-trips or holidays close to home? If your kids are between five and 12 years old, join Kokanee Park art instructors for regular or drop-in art classes at the visitor’s centre.

Certified art teachers Fiona Brown and Charlotte Erlandsson are offering mixed-media art classes including photography, bookmaking, paper-making, printmaking, collage, drawing, painting, sculpture, and nature-arts.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity to involve kids in low-tech art making by introducing them to new techniques and materials that they can continue to explore once holidays are over,” says Brown. “It’s great fun to meet a bunch of kids for just two hours, expand our visual universe together, then return home with a wonderful sense of inspiration and accomplishment,” she adds.

Classes run from 1 to 3 p.m. every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday until Labour Day. The two hour class fee is $10 including materials.
