he Chilliwack Community Arts Council is pleased to welcome back The Art Room Artists for weekly sessions beginning February 5 at the Art Room (20-5725 Vedder Rd.). Known as T.A.R.A., this arts group is comprised of both amateur and professional artists who gather to create art in a collaborative atmosphere.


Drop-in studio times are offered between 1:00 and 5:00 p.m. every Friday and are free to join as well as open to all skill levels. All artists are required to bring along their own paintbrushes, canvases, papers and tools of the trade. These sessions create a unique opportunity to share ideas, techniques, and sources of inspiration while networking with fellow artists.


Heading up the T.A.R.A. group is the talented Warren Halm, an artist and active volunteer who loves to share his knowledge of painting and drawing with fellow artistic souls. As former facilitator of Warren's Art Workshops at the CEED Community Centre in Maple Ridge, Halm is uniquely suited to guide participants through their artistic endeavours while offering encouragement and inspiration.


The Chilliwack Community Arts Council invites you to join the Art Room Artists every Friday afternoon to witness art creation in action at the Art Room. Stop by and watch artists at work or join in and create your own painted masterpiece. Coffee and tea will be provided for participants. For more information about the group please visit, or call 604-769-ARTS (2787).
