Fernie Lantern Festival – Into The Woods – A Search For Volunteers

flf_14_volunteers

The Fernie Lantern Festival is an event I look forward to. I’ve been on the committee from the beginning and I hope to stay on for as long as they’ll have me.

It’s a wonderful evening but a lot of people, time and creative energy goes into making it happen. That’s my segue into:

If you’re interested in being part of the lantern team, either offering your talents (which can be anything from construction, to electrical, to smaller odds and ends that need to be done) we would love to hear from you!

email brinaschenk at gmail for more details

Don’t forget, the first community build is tonight. It’s a place to go to find materials that you can use to make your own lantern. Make one in one evening or take your time over multiple nights. We have a few community builds planned. Here is the list:

Thursday, October 20th 6-9pm (meet upstairs)
Monday, October 24th, 6-9 (meet in theatre from this night on)
Wednesday, October 26th, 6-9
Wednesday, November 9th, 6-9
Friday, November 11th, 6-9
Sunday, November 13th, 11-6

This is a new program, so they’re offering a low introductory price, just $7 for drop-in and $30 for the 6 weeks…but there are still 5 weeks left!

If you’re keen, parents can stay for a spin class for just $7!

Figure Drawing Class At The Artist Collective Studio

Figure Drawing at The Artist Collective in Blairemore

I think I’d like to promote more artistic programs, classes, workshops, gallery openings and anything else art related happening in the area. It’s amazing that such a small town like Fernie (and the valley) even has all these amazing opportunities to create or see great art. In Blairmore, Alberta, not far from Fernie, there is a place called Artist Collective Studio (I’ve posted this poster before) and they’re putting on some Life Drawing classes that I would love to go to but I am not. One day I will (if they hold classes again).

Their next class is on Tuesday, October 27.
