Collaging is one way to get going again when your life feels stuck and you can’t find your next move.

By engaging in collage work, students will first observe visuals created by collecting and arranging their own taste in images.

Next, students will contemplate in writing what their finished work means to them, and how the work might apply to their lives.

Connect With your Inner Artist: Creating Collage is offered at Kent Street Centre in three one-hour sessions, Aug. 11-25.

To register, call 604-541-2231.

Keep active over the summer with the many fitness classes available.
