I’m going through the Wapiti Music Festival playlist to prepare myself for August. I only know a couple bands (slightly) in the lineup so I plan to get started now, if I’m going to sing along to any of these songs.
These are the only details for the paint night:
One night event with artist Patti Leishman. Saturday 9th March 4-9pm 1502, 12th Ave Fernie BC. A share of proceeds goes to the Fernie Community fund.
Children ages 5 to 10 are invited to join us for a two-day Introduction to Ballet For Children on Saturday and Sunday, April 13 and 14 from 1:30 to 3:00 pm.
Classes will begin each day upstairs at the Fernie Museum for an artistic activity in conjunction with the Museum’s current ballet- themed exhibit, Perfect Line, and then move next door to Motion Dance Academy studio for a dance lesson. No prior dance experience required!
Parents are invited to watch a mini-performance at 2:45 pm on Sunday, April 14.
