Art classes open to adults

The arts aren’t just for kids.

Arts Alive, the annual three-week summer school, offers programs for students and adults. More than a dozen classes for adults are offered, including watercolour painting, clay modelling, drawing, sculpting, jewelry and guitar.

Arts Alive was formed 27 years ago by individuals within the parks and rec department and Nanaimo school district to provide summer school classes in the fine arts in July of each year. For information on courses available, please visit www.nanaimoartsalive.com or visit city parks and recreation offices. Registration begins May 14.
