Participants say they are at “a time in their lives” when work and family commitments are reduced, and they are thrilled to have the time to put into making art.

Seniors attending the art classes have a wide variety of experience. Some are beginners, some have gained experience by attending the classes over the last several years, and some have dabbled in art off and on throughout their lives.

Seniors College is open to anyone over 50. It is a great opportunity to learn something new in a wide variety of topics. The camaraderie among the students adds a lot to the enjoyment.

A full list of Seniors College courses, schedules, and descriptions is available at http://www.seniorscollege.ca

The Guild is located at 111 Queen Street in Charlottetown. The gallery is open from 9:00am – 5:00pm 7 days a week and in the evening during shows held in the theatre.

Illustrators Gather at the Guild

From April 28th to May 20th, Reading Town PEI will present an exhibition of original artwork by Island illustrators.

Prince Edward Island has an abundance of talented illustrators. Although their artwork reproductions are key to the success and the fun found in many books, illustrators don’t often have a chance to present original artwork.
