Art Classes are Back and filling up fast!

The Monashee Arts Council is excited to help in bringing the Community Art Classes back to Lumby with community favorites and new and exciting new learning opportunities.

But classes are filling up fast so don’t miss out on your chance to get a spot! Some of these classes would even make great gifts for an artist this holiday season!

The purpose of this program is to provide ongoing weekly art classes to the community, offering classes in a variety of mediums, building a sense of community and support during the winter months, and providing an affordable supportive space for people to develop their creativity. The vision is to engage local artists in sharing and teaching their skills to the community. Also, to promote the advancement of the arts in our community by providing a weekly art space and instructors.

Classes will be held at the Lumby O.A.P Hall every Wednesday night 5:30 – 8 p.m.

For inquiries, contact Program Director Jeannette Wilding @ 250-777-2540

Many thanks to the Monashee Arts Council for the Arts Grant that made this program possible.
