Artists in residence have been present at the Summerland Waterfront Resort during the summer.

Artists in residence have been present at the Summerland Waterfront Resort during the summer.

Lisa Jaager of the resort said the artists have displayed their work and have also held workshops or instruction sessions.

The workshops have included sand sculpture as well as more traditional art forms.

Jaager said the arts workshops are presented to hotel guests but open to anyone.

“This brings arts and culture directly to the front lobby,” she said.

Janice Cornett-Ching, one of the participating artists, had an exhibit set up at the resort hotel Aug. 6 to 10.

She also has had her exhibit since Monday Aug. 20, continuing to Friday, Aug. 24. with art instruction twice a day while the exhibit was in place.

From Aug. 20 to 24, she will have art instruction from 10:30 a.m. to noon and from 1:30 to 3 p.m.

She said the instruction has been worthwhile since she is able to introduce people of all ages to art.

“It’s so neat to teach people things they didn’t know about so far,” she said.
