The Comox Valley Art Gallery invites you to Discover Art Saturday this weekend from 2 to 4 p.m at the gallery.

The cost is free, and it is open to the public and family friendly, so perfect for an afternoon with your kids, a creative date or coffee with friends.

Discover Art Saturdays is an interactive visual art experience held on the first Saturday of every month at the Comox Valley Art Gallery. This event is by drop-in and features art making hosted by the Gallery’s volunteers.

Visit the art exhibits and then sit down to create; draw, sketch, colour and collage. Basic art materials (such as paper, crayons, coloured pencil and collage materials) are supplied for everyone to share and explore.

This month, Discover Art Saturday happens on the closing day of the exhibits on display; In the Presence of Absence, Rights and Wrongs: The Resilience of the World’s Indigenous People or Portfolio.

You can arrive at any time and no registration is required.  This is a great way to get creative with your loved ones, enjoy a casual social, and meet other CVAG members and guests.  Come by for fun, creative, affordable activities, with emphasis on families!
