Next weekend is the perfect opportunity to explore the vast array of different studios in Summerland.

On Nov.  2 and 3 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., many of Summerland’s art studios will be opening their doors and welcoming visitors in to see how they make their magic happen as part of the Summerland and Trout Creek Fall Studio Tour.

Why not make a day of visiting studios and include a stop at a winery or have lunch at one of Summerland’s restaurants.

Bring the kids and learn together about the fascinating world of art! Ask questions, try your hand at something new. There will be demonstrations, explanations and draw prizes.

Drop by the Summerland Art Gallery, 9533 Main Street or the Summerland Library on Wharton and pick up a brochure and map. Or go online to  www.studiotour.wordpress.com for information on locations, types of studios, etc.
