Art Activities
Weeping Woman 1937 by Pablo Picasso 1881-1973
Join the cubist-inspired series of indoor and outdoor art activities. Come down and paint a mural, or draw a cuby, wacky still life at the easel.  Fold an origami bouquet, build an outlandish structure out of everyday materials, or paint your own face, Picasso-style. Instructors will be on hand to help guide participants through the activities.

Considered the most influential art movement of the 20th century, cubism was pioneered by Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso. Cubism was the first abstract art style with artists abandoning the tradition of perspective drawing. Cubist painting depicts their subjects not from a fixed viewpoint. but viewed from different angles.

Yarn Bombing
Yarn bombing is an international public art phenomenon, practiced around the globe (Okanagan Life Nov 2012.)  Join in the  yarn bombing of the Arts Common space, as we transform the trees with knitted, crocheted, and woven cozies.

In preparation, join the Kelowna Art Gallery for Knit ‘n Sip on September 11, from 9 am to 12 pm. Bring your knitting, crochet needles and yarn. Giobean’s yummy coffee will be served. Join the Cool Arts Society on Woolly Wednesdays & Fibre Fridays, 1 to 3 pm at Studio 111, in the Rotary Centre for the Arts.

Okanagan Life Celebration of Photography
Okanagan Life is celebrating 25 years with a showcase of magazine photography from our archives. Since 1988, our photographers have captured the essence of lifestyle in the Okanagan Valley, showcased cultural, community and business leaders, and documented milestones – such as the 2003 Okanagan Mountain Fire.

Hundreds of thousands of artists, cultural workers, organizations and groups, volunteers and supporters are joining in Culture Days in hundreds of cities and towns throughout Canada.
