  • Crestwood Community School is looking for interested artists who would work with
    teachers and students on all sorts of art projects, such as coloured pencil, watercolour,
    drawing, mix media etc. This is a flexiable schedule with as much /or as little time as you would like to volunteer anyday of the week. The idea is to promote art in the school and share your expertise and ideas . Art supplies would be paid for by the school. Children range in ages 3 years up to 12 years. The aim is to start this in September. Interested? Please contact Principal Todd Samuelson 403.526-4495 or
    email with any questions. If you are shy about going alone ask another arty friend to go with you! It is a wonderful opportunity to share your
    talent and encourage children to explore the arts.
  • Our Historian Leona is ever busy with good ideas. Leona would like every member of the Club to submit a piece of art for the Hat Art Club History book. The art should be
    about 2 ½ “ x 3 ½ “ or no larger than 4” x 6” any media is acceptable as long as it fits into the pages. How great to have a real little piece of each member’s art to showcase
    in the History book
