The Penticton and District Community Arts Council will be continuing to deliver their services online for March.
The Arts Matter events for the month include a comic making event, as well as take-and-make art packs.
Aging Well Penticton and other local social service groups will be receiving 70 of those art packs, with the remainder available to the public by contacting the PDCAC office.
So far, the PDCAC has produced and deliver over 1,200 art packs to families, seniors and children since the start of the pandemic, with 500 packs just for Valentine’s Day. Those packs were created in partnership with the recreation coordinators at the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen.
March 6 kicks off the month’s events with the Beginner’s guide to making comics with artist Lindsay Peltz. The resources for the workshop will be available online, with a limited number of supply packs will be available to pick up from the PDCAC.
March 13 features author Riley Goldstone’s short story The Ascending Bonito, as well as a drawing contest.
A performance from local musician Sam McNally will be available for viewing on March 20.
Finally, on March 27, ecologist and writer Don Gayton will be reading his collection of short stories, The Sky and Patio.
All of the downloads and information on the PDCAC’s programs can be found at their website at pentictonartscouncil.com.
