Arts council holds showcase at Lumby Days

Monashee Arts council is hosting an artist workshop showcase as part of Lumby Days this weekend.

The Monashee Arts Council is planning to offer a new series of art classes and workshops to area residents this coming fall.

To promote the new series, the council is hosting an artist workshop showcase as part of Lumby Days this weekend.

The showcase will allow local artists and artisans to promote potential classes to a wide audience at a well-attended public event. The council will have representatives circulating throughout the venue to gather feedback about the public’s interest in specific workshops and to distribute brochures and flyers outlining potential courses.

“This opportunity for artists/instructors to connect face-to-face with the public will give us crucial information that we can use to tailor the classes’ content specifically to meet students’ needs and interests,” said Jennifer Greenwood, the Monashee Arts Council’s new arts and culture program coordinator. “As well, the entire showcase will be invaluable as early publicity that will help make the fall art class program a success.”
