The Charlotte Street Arts Centre hosts two FREE events for Culture Days 2014!

Culture Days 2014 promotes a national network of cultural events offered in cities around the country, all taking place this September 26, 27 and 28. Culture Days’ promotion of access to the arts and appreciation for the arts reflects the long-held goal of the Charlotte Street Arts Centre, to open the doors of creative expression to all.

As part of Culture Days 2014, the Charlotte Street Arts Centre will offer TWO FREE EVENTS to the public on Sunday, September 28:

From 2-4PM, Fredericton-based artist Kaylee Stevens will lead the Wild, Wacky Painting Workshop, for ages 11-14. Only ten places are available in this workshop, so parents might want to register their budding artists ASAP! The workshop will focus on the bright, bold and beautiful, the weird, wacky and whimsical. Participants will draw inspiration from classic artists like Andy Warhol and Salvador Dali, as well as contemporary artists such as Misaki Kawai and Erik Parker, exploring colour theory, juxtaposition, and bringing dreams to life through the brush.

From 4-5PM, join us for the Fredericton Children’s Chorus Sing-Along Concert in the Auditorium. The Fredericton Children’s Chorus was initiated and is directed by Anne Marie Murphy, a Fredericton-based pianist, music director, composer, and vocal coach. This beautiful concert will give participants the opportunity to sing along with the youthful voices of The Fredericton Children’s Chorus and wrap up your Culture Days events with an uplifting, family-friendly experience.

Please register now for either one or both events by contacting the Charlotte Street Arts Centre at 454-6952 or email
