final painting. All materials are supplied but participants may bring their own brushes and palettes
if they wish. Why not bring a lunch and get a little
extra work time? Ages 16+

basic handbuilding methods of slabwork and the
ancient techniques of coiling. Materials will be

The Manitoba Holiday Festival of the Arts owes
its beginning to Gissur Eliasson of the School
of Fine Arts at the University of Manitoba. He
recognized a lack of Art opportunities available
for the creative individual and started a
“Painting in the Park” program . With the help
of the Neepawa Chamber of Commerce, the
Neepawa Fine Arts Festival, Neepawa Collegiate Institute Staff and others, the foundations
of the Festival were laid. The Festival has
grown to include the literary and performing
arts as well as various crafts.
Canteen will be available during the week in
the HMK lunchroom, provided by Shop Easy
Grocery. Menu and prices will be available
closer to the festival dates.
Come out for the festival BBQ
on Wednesday evening, July 9,
for food, games and fun!
Great instruction, small class
sizes, something for all ages in a
fun, friendly atmosphere

quality literature. Each day all age groups will be
able to express something interesting about themselves using a variety of everyday materials that
they will turn into keepsakes to hold on to for a
