Explore Art Literacy

Books will be read. Art will be created.


Explore Art Literacy is a FREE Art Literacy Program for children. Instructor Susan Parkinson is an artist and former kindergarten teacher who will lead the exploration of books and art through fun, hands-on, and sometimes very messy projects. The activities are designed to build memory, attention and concentration – all important to the development of early reading skills.


The program will run four Tuesdays from 10:30AM to 11:30AM at the Nicola Valley Arts Centre Clubhouse. The dates are February 15th, March 1st, March 15th and April 5th. Due to COVID regulations and protocols, the program has limited participation. Register online at or in person at the Nicola Valley Arts Centre Gallery and Gift Shop.
