Two free art workshops for kids are coming up at Cowichan Neighbourhood House in Chemainus.

Workshop No. 1 is for ages 10-18. It takes place on Thursday, Aug. 18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and features Charlene George, an artist from T’Sou-ke, who works primarily with textiles.

Well known from a previous workshop where the youth made a welcoming blanket, she has four activities lined up for the young people.

On Thursday, Aug. 25, workshop No. 2 welcomes 12- to 18-year-olds to spend some artistic time with Alannah MacPhail from Art That Matters.

She will lead teams of three in collage, stenciling, painting, and other  activities from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Each team will create a two foot by two foot collaged and painted wooden panel. Working in teams encourages connection, decision-making, conversation and fun, organizers said.

Both workshops include lunch and the events are made possible by a donation by the Duncan Lions Club.

To register, drop in at 9806 Willow St. or email for a registration form. Children will need a parent or guardian to sign.
