Painting class variations at Art in the Park

New location for Art In The Park

The Good Life Institute is growing with excitement to host Art In The Park this Saturday.

Due to current landscaping at Heritage Park, the event will be held kitty-corner next to the Pollinator Gardens.

The large open space will allow for various artisans to showcase their work. A variety of signage, handmade items, blankets, jewellery, painting, clothing, and pottery will be available for purchase.

“We look forward to seeing everyone,” said coordinator Candice Anderson.

“It’s a relief that we can get a public event on the books for 2020, and we look forward to featuring artisan vendors with all of their homemade arts and crafts.”

Painting classes at 9:00am and 1:00pm will once again be led by local artist Monica To.

They will include step by step instructions for different versions of the art projects, and dilettantes must preregister online at thegoodlifeinstitute.ca or at the Town Office.

They will be taking the appropriate precautions required at this time as well as monitoring the number of attendees. Masks will be optional, sanitizer will be available, and guidelines will be set up to encourage social distancing. They will also be recording names and numbers for safe measure.

Meals will not be covered this year due to a change in sponsorship, but food vendors will be on site.

“It’s important to highlight the value that art brings to our community. The different vendors available all have different talents and skills they are able to offer the public,” said Anderson.

There are still five vendor spots available. If you are interested in showcasing your work, you can contact Candice by emailing [email protected].

Art In The Park will run from 11:00am–3:00pm, and everyone is welcome.
