Parents important literacy supporters PALS: | Literacy program aimed at children also empowers parents with a new or renewed awareness of literacy and its societal role. Fourth of a series SUSAN QUINN ALBERNI VALLEY NEWS

T

he cycle of illiteracy in a community can be tough to break. One provincially based program running in Port Alberni is bucking that trend by signing up parents as literacy supporters. “The legacy is illiteracy,” says Charmead Schella, executive director for Literacy Alberni, which started the PALS committee in Port Alberni in 2011. “You have parents in the house that don’t read, then it’s a cycle.” Including parents as literacy supporters is important if we are to break that cycle, she said, for literacy “is not just reading. It’s all scopes of literacy. It is often how literacy is embedded in everyday life. “You don’t have to be sitting in your child’s room at night reading to your child…it’s the idea of embedding (literacy) everywhere in your home.” Dr. Jim Anderson and Fiona Morrison developed the Parents as Literacy Supporters program as part of the 2010 Legacies Now project. PALS “gives families new strategies to encourage learning in their preschool and Kindergartenaged children.” It also approaches children’s literacy development from

real benefits, is to help bridge the gap between parent and classroom.” Villette and McLane’s sessions typically take place over several Friday afternoons, and kids can learn anything from letters of the alphabet to a Valentine’s Day craft. “We do quite a lot of activities in the school and out in the hall,” he said. One popular activity sees Villette spread shaving cream on a surface and have the kids do “foaming art” demos. “On 100 Days they find out where 100 steps will take them and will put a sticker on the wall.” They work with grids

and fruit as a numeracy exercise too. “The whole point of all of this is it doesn’t look like what people think literacy looks like,” he said. “I just want to give kids as many different kinds of exposure to literacy as I can.” Parents are the key part of the PALS program, Villette said. “The whole point is to get parents involved. I know I have some parents who have poor literacy. What (PALS) does is remove the shame about it a little bit. It teaches them they can come into the school and no one’s going to judge them on their literacy.”

September proclaimed Literacy Month in Port Alberni Port Alberni City Council has declared September Literacy Month in the Alberni Valley and has agreed to fly a “Literacy is Life” flag at city hall

that month. “Literacy Alberni works arduously all year to promote literacy and elevate literacy levels in the community through

varied programming both onsite at our literacy centre on Tebo Avenue, and remotely in schools, at events and throughout the

region,” executive director Charmead Schella told council Monday night. Sept. 23 is Raise-AReader day across Canada, a coordinated

effort to raise funds for literacy programs. Literacy Alberni has participated in this program for nine years, Schella said. “Raise-A-Reader is

Literacy Alberni’s biggest and most important fundraising effort of the year.” Volunteers in Port Alberni will be wearing bright orange

T-shirts and at various locations handing out newspaper sections about literacy issues and programs in the region. editor@albernivalleynews.com

Deakin. His branding committee—made up of business owners, politicians and city staffers—lowered the average age in the room to something closer to Deakin’s target market; millennials. “Our target market is young people and young families 25 to 45 years of age who are entrepreneurially minded, family oriented, adventurous, enjoy an active lifestyle, desire an opportunity to contribute to growth,

well-educated and skilled professionals or tradespeople,” Deakin’s report read. While outdoor recreational spots such as Harbour Quay, Sproat Lake and the Valley’s hiking trails were identified as strengths, the city’s aging infrastructure, empty and rundown buildings and lack of businesses and jobs were seen as the major downsides. Coun. Jack McLeman queried Deakin as to what sorts of jobs the respondents of the survey—41 per cent

within Deakin’s target millennial group— wanted. “Something that would provide a living wage or better,” said Deakin, pointing to CanTimber Biotech’s recent 25 job openings as a good example. High tech jobs are also in high demand, said Deakin. Next steps for the branding committee will include analyzing the results of the survey and presenting a final report with recommendations to council in October. reporter@albernivalleynews.com

ACRD gets approval for airport KATYA SLEPIAN ALBERNI VALLEY NEWS

Only 1.5 percent of valid electors within the Alberni Valley voted against AlberniClayoquot Regional District’s plan to borrow up to $6 million to extend the airport runway. The decision on how to proceed now goes to the ACRD board, CAO Russell Dyson said. “They now have the ability to adopt the bylaws if they wish,” Dyson said. The two bylaws will allow the board to borrow up to $6M and requisition up to $466,250 or $0.15 per $1000 of taxable value (whichever is greater) for airport related services. (The decision came to the board at their Aug. 12 meeting, after the News went to press.) If the bylaws are adopted, the board is authorized to borrow the $6M if they choose. However, they do not have to borrow the maximum amount or any amount whatsoever, Dyson said. According to the ACRD, the runway extension would lengthen the currently 3,952 by 75 foot runway to 5,000 by 100 feet. The length would be gained by extending the runway to the east. The width would be added by 12.5 feet on each side of the runway. The runway extension isn’t the only thing that could be funded by the $6M. “We could use that borrowing power for the lights but the lights were part

of one of our grant funding requests so we’re hoping that grant funding will be available for the lighting as well as the expansion,” Dyson said. Including GPS capability is already factored into the ACRD’s capital budget. “If the board adopts the bylaws we will inform the various funding organizations that we’ve applied to grants for to confirm that the board has the ability to fund its portion,” said Dyson. ACRD staff recommendations outlined in their report advise the board to wait until the grant funding decisions have been made. “We’re hoping they’ll be decided by the fall.” Once the funding is decided upon, the board will proceed with the runway extension process. “A possible scenario is that grant funding is determined in early fall and the board then gives us direction to tender the project,” said Dyson. “Qualified businesses will then bid and we then provide those results back to the board after the close of tender and then the board decides whether to proceed and with what company.” The timeline of the project will depend on the suitability of the companies bidding on the project, their availability and weather conditions, said Dyson. Ideally, construction will begin by the spring of 2016, Dyson added. reporter@albernivalleynews.com twitter.com/AlberniNews

jet fountain planned for the park. “The water can be programmed to dance and it lights up at night.” The fountain won’t be the only part of the park to light up. “I didn’t even know there were 16,000,000 colours in the world but apparently this fountain is capable of

16,000,000 colours so we wanted to make sure that the fountain colours would be visible in the evening.” “We’re going to have directional lighting shining up all the trees as well,” said Gaiga. While the park is for all the community’s residents, Gaiga hopes that it will especially

provide a place for youth to spend time— both for leisure and activities. “I really want to encourage the youth in this town to utilize the park

Uptown Port Alberni is about to get a bit more beautiful with the construction of a brand new pocket park on the north-east corner of Angus Street and Third Avenue. Formerly the site of the old Beaufort Hotel, the lot has been vacant for a number of years. Stacey and Franco Gaiga are taking the lot in a completely different direction. “We’re in the process of transforming it into public green space as a pocket park,” Gaiga told city council on Monday night about Port Alberni’s new ‘Central Park.’ “It will help contribute to some of the Uptown revitalization efforts and initiatives that have been ongoing for a number of years.” While the park will be small, its benefits will reach far outside its boundaries, she sad. “Small parks can increase a sense of community by drawing people to spend time in a specific area,” said Gaiga. “The value of nearby properties can increase and even attract investment.” She’s been thrilled by the upwelling of community support she’s received so far, whether it be excitement on the streets or the monetary and in-kind donations from the city and local business. Citing a study out of South Carolina, Gaiga said that “attractively maintained small and medium parks have a positive influence on neighbouring property values.” Keeping the importance of good maintenance in mind, Gaiga said that the park will be mostly concrete with shrubs and greenery in

in the park. “I want them to come up with ideas about how they can utilize the park for something constructive. Lots of children are good activists.” Starting young, Gaiga believes, is key to encouraging selfless behaviour in Port Alberni’s youth. “Children can learn to be benevolent and give to others and not always rely on others but have others rely on them.” Gaiga hopes to have the majority of the park complete in the fall. City council authorized staff to enter into a fiveyear agreement for maintenance of the park.

EDITORIAL

Greenspace applauded Sorting out federal election issues Two property owners have pitched the idea of creating a park on Third Avenue at Angus Street to replace an empty gravelled lot. Stacey and Franco Gaiga, who also own Ocean Canal Clubhouse across Angus Street from the proposed park, have agreed to put up their own money to develop a little greenspace in Port Alberni’s uptown. We applaud the move wholeheartedly. Not only will it fill up an eyesore of an empty lot, it will provide some greenspace to the area. What the city is tentatively agreeing to— mostly labour and maintenance—seems like a small price to pay to support the park initiative. The owners will be footing the bill to build, service and insure the park. The suggested tax break would offset the fact that the owners would not be able to make money on their investment, and are in fact providing something to the city in exchange—city greenspace. The initial agreement would be for five years, with an option to renew for 10. Five years to establish and enjoy the park, see how uptown progresses, and decide then whether the park is still a good fit. Five years to prove to ourselves and others that we take pride in our own community. We should not discourage such initiatives from residents who seek to make our community a more positive place to live. We hope the city remains committed to Central Park, and that citizens embrace the idea of some greenspace uptown. — Alberni Valley News

ICTORIA – The first, and perhaps the only complete English-language debate in this long federal election campaign has helped define the issues, and the non-issues. I’m not going to try to tell you who “won” or “came out swinging,” because this is not a sporting event. If you’re paying attention in August, bless you, and you probably have a favourite already. First, let’s deal with Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s diabolical scheme to extend the length of the formal election period. This, according to national pundits, is an extension of his evil plot to attract more financial supporters than the other parties, and spend the money. In other words, it’s a non-issue and any opponent who dwells on it looks like a whiner.

This is the first election in modern Canadian history to follow a fouryear schedule. National pundits spent months telling us Harper was going to use a loophole in his own election law to call a spring vote before the economy tanked. Didn’t happen, and now the Conservatives are rightly under scrutiny about their economic management. Incumbent manipulation of election timing is over, and that’s good. Scheduled elections by their nature create longer campaigns, as demonstrated in B.C. and the United States. So they should be conducted under formal campaign rules, which limit the noise of public sector unions and other special interests. Another non-issue is the non-existent deficit and

recession that supposedly grips Canada. On actual results, there is a slim surplus, and if – a big if – Saudi Arabia continues to depress world oil prices, there may be a modest deficit by next spring. The Bank of Canada’s recent move to devalue the dollar has already produced a rebound in exports and tourism, which any government would appreciate. Have you tried to find parking at the mall lately? Of particular interest to B.C. voters is the contest between NDP leader Thomas Mulcair and Green Party leader Elizabeth May. May used what may be her only national debate appearance to press Mulcair to oppose the TransMountain pipeline expansion project before hearings are complete. Mindful of Adrian Dix’s disastrous 2013 decision

to do the same in B.C., Mulcair insisted he would wait for the federal review, even though he considers it to be inadequate. This is, of course, all theatre. Based on their actions, the NDP, Green Party and Liberals are all opposed not just to oil pipelines but export gas pipelines as well. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau wants to cancel capital cost allowances for liquefied natural gas investment that have been granted by B.C. and Ottawa, which could be a deal-breaker for LNG. B.C. NDP leader John Horgan formalized his opposition to the TransMountain expansion last week, in a letter filed with the National Energy Board. But we’re expected to believe that Mulcair has a different position, for now. Harper was forced to admit that his long effort to persuade U.S. President Barack Obama to approve the Keystone XL pipeline has failed, and the project will have to wait until Obama leaves office.

QUESTION of the week

!

Will you pay more attention to the federal electionnow that campaigning has started?

Yes – 42.9% No – 57.1% This week’s question: Do you think the federal government has the right to control where people travel?

Beyond control From / A8

The debate also confirmed positions on Canada’s modest role in bombing Islamic State terrorist positions in Iraq and Syria. The Conservatives are for it, and the Liberals, NDP and Greens are against it. Trudeau set the stage for the contest in Quebec, which B.C. voters can only watch from afar to see if it once again decides

the shape of their federal government. Trudeau pushed Mulcair on his cynical bid to court the separatist voters who suddenly swung to Jack Layton’s NDP in 2011. Like petroleum prices, it’s beyond our control. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press. Twitter: @tomfletcherbc

Mailbag: Feedback on green parks, green logs, green trees No tax break for city park To the Editor,

It’s great the Gaigas want to put a park on their property. If they are so nice it should not cost anything from the city taxpayers. The park shouldn’t be used as an excuse not to pay their share of taxes. The Gaigas should not be allowed the tax exemption in order to hold prime commercial real estate without paying taxes. If this is allowed what is stopping every owner with vacant commercial property from having a park in order not to pay for their share of taxes? As a taxpayer I don’t need my taxes going to upkeep of private commercial property with the excuse it is a park. We already have great parks throughout Port Alberni that tax money goes to maintain, we don’t need another. If the city council passes this, I expect the same consideration; paying my utilities, snow removal and sweeping my property. I will even put up a park bench and a fountain too. If the uptown likes

The Alberni Valley News will not be publishing letters to the editor that we receive from candidates during the 2015 federal election.

this, they should pay for it and all costs including the Gaigas’ taxes for the property. No money or exemptions from the city for the upkeep of private property; if that’s the case, we’ll all want the same.

Jim Irvine, Port Alberni

Are we smart enough to see? To the Editor,

Will we biblically, for a mess of potage, sell our inherited legacy? Do we still swallow slogans “Forests forever” and “It’s growing faster than we’re cutting it?” Do we know when to cut back and is too late to quit? Will the logging lobbies guarantee adequate inventory for our surviving wood industry? Should stumpage fee ensure that woodworkers like public service, pensions see?

This was once passed at a convention of the NDP that later removed clause of appurtenancy that tied manufacturing to forestry and opened the door to exporting raw log tree. Are woodworkers lower class, never destined to get government’s indexed pension parity? Can we continue to be hewers of wood and drawers of water to the same degree? When they export the last tree, will global warming exact a costly penalty?

RJ Frankow, Port Alberni

Enough is enough! To the Editor,

It is great that the Alberni Valley News is still passing on news about the Dog Mountain fire to those not at or involved with Sproat Lake. The glib and total

blabber from the Coastal Fire Center that this is how they deal with fires throughout the province, “allowing the fuel to burn within the perimeter”, means let the entire Dog Mountain peninsula smoulder and burn until it runs out of combustible materials or Mother Nature puts it out. Only thanks to Mother Nature do we have anything left there. Dog Mountain was a jewel in the middle of one of, if not, the best lake in the province. It is surrounded by highly taxed residences and recreational properties. Those taxes run into the millions each year. These taxpayers should deserve better service and less destruction of their environment, airshed and view scape when so little would have been necessary to be done to extinguish the balance of these smoke-emitting hot spots without endangering fire crews. For the money being spent monitoring the perimeter (translation: drive around in a boat once a day or fly over in a helicopter) these could easily

be extinguished and more undercover and root structure could be saved. Not to mention the smoke, haze and stink still being emitted. For those who are surprised how much green there still is in half the trees on Dog Mountain, you will be more surprised over the next few months and years as most of the remaining trees die off and turn into bleached and dangerous snags. The process of letting the undercover burn in many areas of our province burns off needles and grass. On Dog Mountain, with minimal soils on bare rock, the roots of all the trees are just under the moss and surface materials. Most of the trees will have suffered fatal root damage. If I was one of those property owners that are either in the smoke and burnt wood stink zone, or still and maybe permanently evacuated from my summer getaway, I would be seeking retribution and answers as to how this is being perpetuated by a seriously flawed policy and program.

Religious leaders in Jesus time were angry with Him for many of His teachings and practices. Jesus teachings were clear and simple; easy enough for ordinary people to understand. It is common for us to make religion complicated, which can become confusing and discouraging for many. Jesus said that we need to know God and know Him – This is eternal life. It’s not enough to just know about Him. He did make it simple. He taught us to read His Word – that this was food to our souls. He taught us to talk to God, to open our hearts to Him in prayer. Then He taught us to share with others what we know about Him from personal experience. This is the most valuable witness of all. Alberni Valley United Church

Uptown businesses hit with vandalism SUSAN QUINN ALBERNI VALLEY NEWS

Two dozen businesses in uptown Port Alberni are cleaning up this week after someone vandalized the area with graffiti. “At least half of the uptown merchants have been hit,” Uptown Merchants Association president Kevin Wright said. The volume is too great for the four

graffiti busting kits the association bought last May, he said: the kits are out of the paint cleaner, and Wright estimates they will need 20–30 more cans —at a cost of about $10 per can—to clean up everything that was tagged last week. “Because of the scope and magnitude that’s been hit...we’re going to have to have a concerted effort to paint and go back and

fix this.” Wright was especially disappointed that the former post office building on Argyle Street—recently purchased by local investors—was hit. “We have a new investor come in and buy the Canada Post building, they want to do something new and they get hit with this,” he said. Wright said the attack was frustrating.

“I’m an artist and I appreciate a good graffiti artist. Just because someone may be talented doesn’t mean they can take someone else’s property to showcase their work. “In reality it’s just a selfish act.” A police report was filed and the city is also involved, Wright said. Previous councils have looked at creating anti-graffiti

bylaws but ultimately felt federal penalties are sufficient, city economic development manager Pat Deakin said. “It is a criminal act and there are provisions federally to either sentence or fine the individual, or both,” he said. Council reaffirmed their commitment this week to replacing supplies in the graffiti kits, Deakin said. editor@albernivalleynews.com

SUSAN QUINN/ALBERNI VALLEY NEWS

Uptown Merchants Association president Kevin Wright suits up for graffiti removal in a Fourth Avenue alley.

Drivers caught From / A6 While Richards said that this sort of behaviour isn’t uncommon in Port Alberni, three vehicles in one weekend is higher than normal. “You just drive around town and you see different marks on the roadway so it’s not uncommon,” said Richards. “Three in one day is a little more than we would see in a regular day.” Similar dangerous driving was seen last year around the same time as the Thunder in the Valley drag racing as well. “We saw similar

things at the same time last year,” said Richards. “At least two or three years in a row we see the same thing at the same time.” According to Richards, spinning tires is both illegal and dangerous. “It’s obviously an offence under provincial regulations to do so,” said Richards. “There is the potential that they could lose control of their vehicle, the environmental issues with the burning of the rubber of degradation of the asphalt.”

Happy 97th Birthday Lumina Lumina St. Jacques spent a special 97th birthday at Chances RimRock Gaming Centre with her family and friends. The celebration was held on Saturday June 20th and her birthday was on the 22nd.

Jennifer Collette tries on the Yamaha CX50fr Vino that you could own by purchasing a ticket for $10 with proceeds going to Alberni Valley Hospice/Ty Watson House. If you want an opportunity to purchase a ticket you can get them at their office on 3rd Avenue and at the Sunset Market at Victoria Quay every Wednesday evening from 6 to 9 pm.

Lily Butler, 1, found her choice item, this rocking horse at Foxglove Consignment. City councilor Chris Alemany took the plunge for Hospice at the Blue Marlin party in the parking lot and with all of their fundraising they reached a total of $500. Many thanks to all participants.

Bak Foong (Fred) Lee

June 28, 1923 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; August 2, 2015 Passed away peacefully at his home with his daughter Diana and son-in-law Jim beside him. Worked 45 years at APD sawmill, strong union activist who would go on strike for months while raising 7 kids in order to achieve better conditions. For a man with grade 3 education he managed to work himself up from general labourer to foreman supervisor. Dad was a member of the Legion both in Port Alberni and in Bowser. His name is etched in the Sun Yat-Sen Memorium Garden in Vancouver as an original member of the Chinese Battalion. He was an avid salt water fisherman with his boats the Dragon King (1-4) who continued to fish until he was 91. Dad lived a full life and visited his daughter Lorinne in Australia many memorable times, the Hong family in New Zealand in recent years and many friends all over the world. He was predeceased by his wife Helen in 1993 and a son Wesley in 1954 and leaves behind his seven children: Terry, Bonita, Diana (Jim), Tony, Corey, Lorinne and Jeffrey, 13 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren. We appreciate the outstanding care, support and compassion shown by Valleycare Clinic, especially Dr. Dana Burry and Cathy for the treatment Dad received over the years. Viewing is at the Chapel of Memories 4005 6th Ave. on Friday August 14th from 10:00 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 12:00 with a Celebration of Life following at 2:00 PM at the Bavarian Centre, 3031 - 4th Avenue, Port Alberni.

He is survived by his siblings Alberta, Leigh and Judith; his wife of 47 years, Brenda, and his sons Michael, Leigh, Ian (Vikki), and Lyle (Leigh-Anne).

Parents learn too From / A3 Maggie Hodge Kwan is a PALS facilitator and former librarian with the Port Alberni chapter of the Vancouver Island Regional Library. She is now working with Alberni Children First. She has met parents who have said they are just learning to read and the reason they are learning is because their prekindergarten child has asked them to read a story at bedtime. The PALS training is there as much for adults as it is for the kids, she adds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Literacy means having the necessary building blocks in place through reading and writing that allow you to build on those and navigate our increasingly complex world.â&#x20AC;? This includes technology; the Ministry of Social Development and Social Involvement will in 2016 go paperless and Hodge Kwan is concerned that people already

dealing with barriers will be forced to go online. Hodge Kwan said she has seen first hand how the PALS program crosses the generation gap. At the end of a PALS session she was giving away free books courtesy of Literacy Alberni when a family of four came up to her. The kids picked out books and the father was looking at one â&#x20AC;&#x153;and said it was cool. I said if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like the book youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re welcome to take it. He said that would be wonderful. My wife is tutoring my reading skills; I never learned to read beyond a basic level,â&#x20AC;? Hodge Kwan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was finding it difficult to find books to read to his daughter and he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to read a kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; book. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was a beautiful moment.â&#x20AC;? Next: For Nuuchah-nulth Nations, literacy also means preservation of a dying language.

Bulldogs busy adding Bouchard wins club title new players to lineup ◆ GOLF

‘There is a ton of excitement leading up to this season.’ – Adam Hayduk

AAA team. He is “a physical, stay-at-home defenceman who put up 10 points in 34 regular season games this season,” Hayduk noted. Nolan Alward, from Havelock, NB, comes to the Bulldogs from the Moncton Major Midget Flyers. He led all blueliners in scoring with 34 points, was selected to the first all-star team and was named the league’s MVP. Liam Conrad is an all-star forward from Sackville, NB who also played last season with the Moncton Major Midget Flyers. He was the leading

scorer with 52 points (23 goals, 29 assists) in 35 games. Goaltender Chris Tai, 20, comes from the Lloydminster Bobcats (AJHL) for future considerations. He is entering his fourth season at the Junior A level and has 79 games of experience between the Western Hockey League, BCHL and AJHL—14 of which were in the playoffs. The Bulldogs kick off their season with their fourth annual golf tournament on Sunday, Aug. 23, the day before main training camp begins. The tourney allows participants to meet and interact with the Bulldogs’ players and staff over golf and dinner. For info, check out the Bulldogs’ website at www. albernivalleybulldogs. ca.

It’s only August but the Alberni Valley Bulldogs have been a busy team of late, preparing for the 201516 BC Hockey League season while the rest of the Port Alberni has been wishing away the latest heat wave. “There is a ton of excitement leading up to this season,” says assistant coach Adam Hayduk. “Our returning players, new recruits and veteran acquired through trades should make for a great season.” The Bulldogs have acquired four new players ahead of training camp: two defencemen, a forward and a veteran goaltender. Nathan Walker, a 1997-born defenceman from Calgary, AB, played last season with the Calgary Buffaloes Midget

A Field Guide to Seaweeds of the Pacific Northwest

By Dr. Bridgette Clarkston Seaweed. It’s the mushy green stuff you’re loathe to swim through or step on at the beach. To Dr. Bridgette Clarkston, a seaweed biologist, science educator and author, though, seaweed is a maritime treasure. Clarkston grew up on the seashore in Comox, BC, where she says she was constantly dragging into the house the latest treasure the tide left on the beach. She has spent nine years teaching about seaweed and coastal biodiversity, including stints at Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre. Her field guide is pocket-sized and waterrepellent, making it ideal for a day at the beach. Inside, Clarkston describes more than 40 of the most important and interesting seaweeds commonly encountered on the West Coast, accompanied by colour photographs. A Field Guide to Seaweeds of the Pacific Northwest is an ideal source for casual phycological fun. Published by: Harbour Publishing Available at: Local bookstores List price: $7.95

“My View of Nature Close Up and Away” is an exquisite art exhibit running from Aug. 11 until Sept. 19, featuring watercolour artist Judi Pedder. Judi will showcase her collection of flower portraits and landscapes. Please join us in the gallery, Sat. Aug. 15 from 1-3 p.m. for Judi’s artist reception; talk about art while enjoying some refreshments.

Watercolours for beginners

Evening watercolour painting for beginners at Echo Centre is a class meant for adults who are interested in learning the basics of watercolour painting. We will begin with monochromatic (one colour) painting to focus on value and controlling our washes. We will move to two colour and then onto multicolour paintings proceeding in a stepby-step fashion so that each technique is understood before we move onto the next. We will paint a variety of subjects from still life to landscapes, culminating in an optional subject for the last class. Some interesting texture techniques will be presented along with traditional washes. The pace of this class will be relaxed so that each person can proceed at their own speed. A supply list will be available at Echo Centre. Instructor: Cynthia Bonesky. The classes will take place Tuesdays from Oct. 13 to Dec. 8 (no class Oct. 27) from 7–9
