The Point Artist-Run Centre is set to host new spring sessions from March 25 to April 23. (Save for one songwriting session that already took place on March 19.)
On Saturday, March 25, kids ages six to 10 are welcome to head down for Dragons & the Creative Process, hosted by actor, musician, and writer Jacques Lalonde. The Vancouverite has been a guest star on shows like Sesame Street and The Addams Family—and has made appearances at both the Vancouver and Whistler Children’s Festivals. That session runs from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m.
Then, from 2 to 4 p.m., long-time Whistler artist and musician Aude Ray will take “young artists on a creative adventure” with her Painting and Song workshop.
