Free seniors art program seeking instructors

Program open to seniors with accessiblity issues, contact Arts and Rec Centre's Elizabeth Waldorf

  • Sep. 10, 2014 2:00 p.m.

Quesnel Leisure Services is looking to recruit local artists as lead instructors and members of the community as assistants for their new art program for seniors.

Seniart runs from Sept. 2014 through Jan. 2015 and provides art sessions for seniors who have experienced barriers to participating in the regular leisure services programming.

The program is free thanks to funding in part through the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program and the Northern Health Healthy Community grant.

This program is open to any senior who has found it difficult to join in art sessions previously for any number of reasons. Participants can be individuals or join as part of a group. Sessions will take place at a variety of locations such as Dunrovin Park Lodge, The Seniors Centre, Fraser Village, Shiraoi House, the Long Name Society and the Arts and Recreation Centre’s Studio.

Morning and afternoon art program times will be available once participants and spaces are scheduled.

Artist instructors and potential assistants will be invited to demonstration studio sessions using the materials and techniques involved with their projects.

For information on how to get involved or seniors looking for details, contact Elizabeth Waldorf, art program coordinator at or call 250-991-4013.
