ArtSpring is very pleased to announce their 3rd annual Celebrate the Arts: Art Making by the Salt Spring Artist Community, in collaboration with Salt Spring Arts Council’s 2019 Easter Art Tour.

The activities for children will include:
Johanna Hoskins with:
Screen printing, block printing and Easter egg dying.

Natural printing (eco-printing) involving plant material on cotton fabric.

We will also have a number of performers creating music in the gallery space or in the lobby.
We celebrate any creative endeavour. We celebrate our artistic community.
Celebrate the Arts! features a one-day gallery exhibit and theatre performance of participatory artworks created for anyone interested in the process and experience of making art. The exhibition will be held on April 20 from 10:00am to 4:00pm in the ArtSpring Gallery and will feature participatory (any artistic level and age welcome) and demonstrative art projects. A giant participatory mural-making project will be part of the event. In the ArtSpring Theatre from 5:00pm to 6:00pm theatrical Mash-ups celebrate the creativity of cross-genre artists who have come together to create new works of performance art.
“We hope that not only will visitors come away with a new appreciation for the creative process but that they will also have had the opportunity to participate in some way.” Cicela Månsson – Executive & Artistic Director, ArtSpring
