As part of the various holiday celebrations, the Comox Valley Art Galley wants to celebrate you!

This Saturday, you are invited to a community appreciation open house and Discover Art Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. This is a free family-friendly event that is open to the public, so it’s perfect for an afternoon with your kids, or a creative date with friends.

Gallery staff and volunteers will have a fun and easy holiday craft for you and your little ones to make. Gather and create; draw, sketch, colour or collage. Basic art materials are supplied for everyone to share and explore.

While enjoying the celebration and participating in Discover Art Saturday this month, make sure to walk around the gallery, grab a hot drink and snacks and explore the Comox Valley Art Gallery’s 39th annual Christmas Craft Fair.

The longest-running Christmas Craft Fair in the Comox Valley runs until Dec. 28 — weeks of gorgeous local, handmade arts for gifting and sharing: wood art, photography, jewelry, fabric arts, soaps, candles, specialty foods, glass works, ceramics, paper goods, gifts for children, youth, adults — everyone on your list, even you!

We will provide refreshments, art-making supplies, and happy holiday smiles. We look forward to seeing you at 580 Duncan Ave. in Courtenay, across from the Courtenay Public Library.

For information on the gallery’s art education programs, visit www.comoxvalleyartgallery.com or call 250-338-6211.
