Parksville Qualicum Beach is home to world-class artists and when you're here, you have lots of opportunities to unleash your creativity.
1. Paint with MONK. Throughout the summer, young and old are encouraged to add their brush strokes to a beautiful collaborative painting. Watch for MONK onsite at Rathtrevor Beach and Cathedral Grove or find her in her downtown Parksville gallery and studio.
2. Make Glass Beads at Robert Held Art Glass. Robert Held has been working with glass for over 40 years! Try your hand at it when you're in Parksville. Keep an eye on the Robert Held Art Glass Facebook page for workshops.
3. Raku with Pyromania Pottery. Here's an activity you'll only be able to do in the off-season. Fire is an essential part of the raku process so the fire ban seasons of July and August are not an option. From September to June, Pyromania Pottery usually has once a month raku opportunities for all ages. Select a pot, glaze it, and leave with a work of art.
