Okanagan Boys & Girls Club at the Shatford!

EditorArticle, Shatford Centre / OSArtsLeave a Comment

We are looking for artists and art enthusiasts to help out in the studio! 

SCOSA has  partnered  with the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club (OBGC) to provide a program called the Creative Academy, which is in development through a grant from the Community Foundation of the South Okanagan Similkameen.  Matt Hatch, OBGC Program Coordinator, brings together the children and staff after school at the Shatford Centre on Tuesdays afternoons. We hear the children coming and feel the energy of the 97 year old heritage building shift enthusiastically when 30+ children arrive! The routine is that the children and staff land in a classroom for a snack and orientation, then children select their choice of activities. So far, choices are the Auditorium for recreational and fun games and the Visual Arts Studio for creative adventures. We are also adding the Rotary Community Learning Kitchen as another option in the next few weeks and are looking for studio and kitchen help-mates to help enhance this weekly experience. Let us know if you are interested.

If you have any interest please contact us for the details. 250-770-7668 or e-mail info@shatfordcentre.com for the schedule and details.
