Samples of tiles painted at 4Cats Arts Studio.

Kids invited to take part in artistic fundraiser

On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 4Cats will be holding free ceramic tile painting workshops

There’s no better way to bring in the holiday season than to give a little something back to the community.

This weekend, 4Cats Arts Studio and Grounded Coffee will be offering Nelson and area youth the chance to do just that.

On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 4Cats will be holding free ceramic tile painting workshops, where each child will have the chance to artfully decorate a piece to be kiln-fired.

Then on Thursday, December 12, at the “Grounded Gives to the Kids” event at Grounded Coffee, the masterpieces will be sold to raise funds for Kootenay Kids. This fun, free event is a great way to both involve kids in supporting local charities, and let them explore their creative talents.

“I’m consistently impressed and amazed at the level of talent in Nelson kids,” says Eli Geddis, 4Cats arts instructor, “and I can’t wait to see how they channel it to help out a great local cause. Last year at this event, the students painted their own unique coffee flavours like ‘trouser,’ ‘dragon,’ and ‘hockey,’ flavoured coffee. So who knows what surprises they have in store for this year!”

To register your child for any of these sessions, call 4Cats Arts Studio at 250-354-2287 or visit them online at 4cats.com/nelson. Each session is 30 minutes long and has 10 available spots.

Ages 6-10: Friday, November 22 at 3:30 p.m., Saturday, November 23 at 10 a.m. and Sunday, November 24 at 10 a.m.

Ages 10-15: Friday at 4 p.m., Saturday at 10:30 a.m. and Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
