Open air art studio making return here


The Community Living Fort Frances and District open air art studio is returning for a second year, with the first session set for this Monday (July 9).

The studio will be held from 3-7 p.m. at the Rainy Lake Square, with participants making “Pride” flags and ribbon wands in conjunction with Borderland Pride.

After all, next week is “Pride Week” in Borderland.

The open air art studio will run nearly every Monday from 3-7 p.m.

The next session will be held on July 16 at Point Park, where participants will make painted sticks, mobiles, and crowns.

The rest of the schedule is as follows:

  • July 23—Lions' Park (suncatchers);
  • July 30—Legion Park (bird feeders);
  • Aug. 13—Point Park (Shibori dyeing);
  • Aug. 20—McIrvine Park (chromotography);
  • Aug. 27—Front Street Park (stick weaving); and
  • Saturday, Sept. 10—TBA (collage art).

All sessions are free, and everyone of all ages and abilities are welcome.

The initiative is made possible through a Moffat Family Fund grant of $2,700 which Community Living received this year.
