Fun in the summer

This summer Pynelogs Cultural Centre will be hosting some fun and exciting summer workshops that will spark creativity in all ages

This summer Pynelogs Cultural Centre will be hosting some fun and exciting summer workshops that will spark creativity in all ages.  The workshops being offered range from acrylic painting to jewelry making, shrinking crafts to Raku, paper crafts to quickdraw, and much more.  Pynelogs’ own Sarah Frazier is even putting on three new workshops in her areas of expertise, as she has her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film Making.  Baffled by your digital camera or feel there is a budding filmmaker lurking within you?  The classes she is offering include a screenwriting circle, DIY animation, and film making for beginners.

Whether the whole realm of filmmaking is something you are passionate about or you would just like to learn how to put your home footage on DVDs, then her classes are for you.  Then again, maybe you are more of a songbird and would love some guidance in expressing yourself through lyrics and song.  Also new this year is a vocal workshop and songwriting workshop, both taught by Joanne Stacey.  The vocal workshop is hands on and will help participants gain understanding of their voices and learn techniques to help with placement and tone.  The songwriting workshop will help master the creative process and how to capture that creativity in music.

A question and answer period will also take place where any questions regarding songwriting, music business, recording, how to get a publisher, and copyright information can be discussed.  There is a workshop for every age and a variety of interests so be sure to check out what is being offered and let your artistic side out this summer.  The workshop schedule is now up on the CV Arts website (www.columbiavalleyarts.com) and for any additional questions, or to register, please don’t hesitate to give us a call down at Pynelogs at 250-342-4423.

Don’t forget that the Mountain Mosaic Festival of the Arts is also fast approaching on July 1 and will take place at Kinsmen Beach.  Sarah Frazier and I have been lucky enough to get involved with the festival this year and will be organizing and running the Mosaic kids craft tent.  We are busy planning and are excited to share what we’ve been working on with the hundreds of enthusiastic kids that we are expecting. The festival promises to be a great time for all ages so it should definitely be a part of your Canada Day plans.

A draw will also take place on the day of the Festival for our Columbia Valley Arts Council members at 2:40 p.m.  The prize is a Tinhorn Creek Vineyards and Golf package that features two nights accommodation at the Tinhorn Creek Vineyards Guest house, dinner for two, and a round of golf with a cart at the Fairview Mountain Golf Club located in Oliver, B.C.

A very special thanks to Tinhorn Creek Wines and Bob and Barb Shaunessy for making it possible to offer such a wonderful prize.
