Children will be able to explore the arts this summer as the Summerland Community Arts Council is offering a variety of programs through its annual Summer Arts Program.

The program runs from July 9 to Aug. 18 and includes a variety of arts, crafts, music, drama and more.

Alana Parker, coordinator of the program, said one of the new programs this year is World Harp Kids, which introduces children to harp music.

The program, from July 23 to 27, is taught by Caroline McKay.

Through the Stage Door, a drama program, will run July 16 to 20 and 23 to 27.

This program, taught by David Kopp and Linda Beaven, is split into sessions for those from six to eight years of age and those from nine to 12.

Rick Wiebe’s program, Fun With a Pocket Knife, has run in the past and will be back again this year.

New instructors this year are McKay, Ashlie Atkinson and Doreen Bell.

Atkinson will teach Broadway Bound, which covers music from a Broadway musical.

Bell will teach Clay Quest, a pottery class.

For younger children, Messy and Marvellous is a program for those between three and five years of age.

It introduces children to art made from materials such as rubber balls, old T-shirts, paint, mud and more.

Parker urges people to register their children early for this program because it tends to fill up quickly.

Registration forms can be picked up at the Summerland Community Arts Council, 9533 Main St.

Forms may be mailed to the arts council at Box 1217, Summerland, V0H 1Z0 or e-mailed to admin@summerlandarts.
