2020 was definitely a very difficult year for everyone around the world. Despite the global pandemic and multiple tragic events across our fair Province and across the planet, there were also a whole lot of good things happening too. Communities really pulled together, supported local, kept their economies growing, looked out for their neighbours and families, even in many circumstances when they were miles apart.
Here at 7arts we kept going, even when our doors were closed, our busy dedicated volunteers kept working away on improving our building, making Craft Kits and selling art. We’re still going strong. Thanks to the continued support of you our community, 7arts has managed to pull through and we’ll soon be open more.
Thank you to our amazing volunteers and to our wonderfully supportive and patient community. 2021 is already looking great. Stay tuned for our line up of fun creative activities and events for 2021.
COVID-19 threw us for a loop. As many of you know we had to sadly cancel our first ever March Break Art Camp. We did everything we could to keep the creative fun running. Through social media, email how to booklets and online videos. We thank everyone for sticking by us and lending your support.
Now that things are slowly reopening more and more we have started some of our regular activities. We’ve reopened with social distancing and health protocols in place at our 7arts building at 619 Central Ave. in Greenwood. We’ve been sanitizing everything regularly, taking everyone’s health and safety very seriously. It’s a new normal but we’re still here!
Please check out our Calendar page on here as it will be regularly updated and follow all of our social media especially Facebook and Instagram for our upcoming classes and events. We have an exciting and busy summer of Creative Crafts and Fun Art events coming up.
The next phase of renovations began at the 7arts building at the end of February. Volunteers and Board members were busy filling, priming and painting the walls, then we had contractors in to install our brand new floors. The space is looking sparkling and new with more and more added to it as we go. Come on out to check out our beautifully renovated space and the many new programs that we have to offer.
January and half of February has flown right by and we’ve been busy. We successfully kicked off our Wellness Wednesday Program with Bell Let’s Talk on January 29th. Thanks to the generosity of Bell Aliant at Greenwood Mall, we were able to invite some guests from Beacon House to our Makers Space that afternoon for arts and crafts.
Wellness Wednesday continues each week at the Makers Space. We invite seniors and adults to drop in during the mornings for some arts and crafts. Groups are also welcome to book the space Wednesday afternoons, we can even offer facilitators for Art and craft workshops upon request. We will also offer some health and wellness services in the space thanks to some visiting local practitioners including Wellness 180 and so much more. Please be sure to check out our calendar here and our Facebook page for ongoing events.
