SPAC celebrating in the new year!

New and exciting things are coming up in the new 2017-2018 SPAC year. See below for updates on our 65th Anniversary celebration! The guest artist workshops for the next year have just been announced (see workshops page) and there are some very talented & well known artists who will be sharing their expertise with us.

SPAC has now moved deeper into the social media world and has launched its own Facebook page which can be found at www.facebook.com/groups/1555722464680944/. Our Social Media Chair, Susan Siemens, has also set up Instagram! You can contact her at spacmem2@shaw.ca, subject line ‘Social Media’  or on the facebook page.

This is really exciting as we can all show samples of our artwork on it – a perfect and easy way to show our talent to the world. There will be lots of links to art magazine articles, seminars & videos and tips on art making. Everyone is invited to contribute. FYI – Susan will help with ‘technical issues’!

SPAC will be 65 in 2017!

John Moloney, our Archives Chair, has found the following information about SPAC’s inception:
Originally formed as the ‘Saanich Peninsula Arts Centre’ it later became known as ‘Saanich Peninsula Arts & Crafts’, and on March 25,1977 was incorporated as the ‘Saanich Peninsula Arts & Crafts Society.’

The Board has struck a 65th Anniversary Committee to plan the celebration, & we  are looking for volunteers to join in. The official event will take place in the fall of 2017 (unofficial until the committee lets us know the actual date). Help is available with ideas & access to the archives. This is your chance to help plan a special celebration for our group!
