Jennifer Hickey, CAC The Art Room



he Chilliwack Community Arts Council invites artists and crafters, both young and young at heart, to explore the exciting selection of classes and workshops on offer this January and February. All sessions are held at the Art Room (20-5725 Vedder Rd.) and feature activities to suit every age range, skill level, and medium of choice.


For the little ones, the reinvented Kids Get Messy class offers up playful, hands-on arts and crafts projects to kindle young minds, and soon to be an Art Room favourite, Music with Andrea, will have kids up and dancing to the beat.


Mixed media connoisseurs will delight in the endless creative combinations explored in Mixed Media Mary Poppins and Journaling through Mixed Media as well as wearable creations crafted in Words in Wire, “Can” Do Art Jewellery, and the Washer Bracelet Workshop. While for those looking to indulge in the fine craft of soap making, we offer two classes to excite the senses: Melt & Pour Soap: An Introduction to Soap Making and Advanced Cold Process Soap Making: Swirling with Colour.


To complete the winter line up, painting traditionalists will discover a fresh perspective through Whimsical Watercolour Portraits, Stencils and Silhouettes, and the ever popular, sommelier approved Corks and Canvas.

Class registration and more information are available online at chilliwackartscouncil.com, over the phone by calling 604-769-ARTS (2787), or in-person at the Art Room.
