Each Friday, campers aged 6 – 7 in All About Art prepared an exhibition for friends and family, showcasing all their hard work and creative ideas from the week. This week’s theme was “The Great Outdoors” and campers were busy constructing their favourite snacks out of papier-mâché. The end product looks convincingly tasty wouldn’t you agree?
This year’s Bravo Broadway was another smash hit! While the 8-10 year old’s refined their sweet tooth in the production of Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, the 11-14 year olds worked hard to get by with just a few of their favourite things in the production of The Sound of Music! This camp is always a sell-out so don’t miss out!
Campers in Clay Crazy (ages 8 – 10) had a great time creating everything out of clay! From frog sculptures to functional serving dishes, campers learned a variety of hand building and decorating techniques, as well as trying their hand at the potter’s wheel! Stay tuned for the forthcoming interview with two of our campers as they explain why clay is so much fun and how using the potter’s wheel is kind of like learning how to drive a car!
Campers in Creative Couture were busy designing, measuring, cutting, styling, and sewing unique and functional fashion pieces! In addition to showcasing their new creations down the runway at the Friday fashion show, campers also learned how to screen print and create other stylish accessories.
And an extra thank you goes out to all the volunteer assistants who woke up early each day and helped make each camper’s week a memorable one! Good luck in the new school year!
Summer Camp 2012 ONSALE NOW!

On Monday, November 23rd, 2010, the Living Arts Centre hosted its annual volunteer recognition event. We acknowledged the outstanding work of our over 150 volunteers by marking milestones of service and by awarding those who have gone above and beyond the requirements of our program. For the first time ever, a number of our youth volunteers joined us in this celebration of their service in youth programming.
This year’s coveted Volunteer of the Year award was given to Mr. Paul Walker who commits time to our Information Desk, Volunteer Social Committee and the Marketing department via Outreach in the community. Paul has been with the Living Arts Centre since 2004. He is a dedicated volunteer who is rarely absent from his Friday afternoon post at the information desk. Greeting everyone with a smile, Paul provides excellent customer service and develops wonderful relationships with clients and patrons (swing by and meet him sometime). Congratulations Paul!
