The Creators Club!

Wednesday, August 23, 2017 9:30am - 12:30pm
Location: Durham Art Gallery

Join the Creators Club! This summer, the Durham Art Gallery is offering an eight week summer program, the “Creators Club”. Children and youth, ages 6 to 12, will have the opportunity to explore sculpture, collage art, painting, and more. We will look at themes such as the connections between art and food, the environment, and science. Register your child(s) early, as there are a limited number of spaces available. You may register your child(s) for the whole summer or simply the weeks that are most convenient. The suggested price is $10.00 per child per class, as this cost would cover the materials and ensure that the program could provide unique and creative art opportunities for children and youth. If paying this cost would deter your child(s) from participating, please contact the gallery and financial sponsorship can be arranged accordingly. NOTE: If you are a parent of a toddler or pre-schooler and would be interested in participating is a separate art class for designed for your child's age, please contact the gallery directly. If continued interest is shown, a two hour bi-weekly class will be added for toddler and pre-school age children. These classes will require parents or guardians to remain with their children.

Location: Durham Town Hall, 185 George Street West, Durham

The Durham & District Horticultural Society welcomes Tanya Schlosser giving a timely presentation on one of our gardens' most beautiful creatures, the butterfly! Many of these pollinators are dropping in numbers and we will learn ways to help increase their population. We will also be learning ways to promote and help save the bee population which has been increasingly threatened in the past years. Whether you are an avid gardener or just like to "smell the roses" learn how important these insects are to not only our flowers, but to our vegetable plants & fruit trees as well. Refreshements following the meeting. Everyone welcome!
