Summer art classes aren’t just for kids.

Personalize your summer with the Chilliwack Cultural Centre’s new lineup of adult classes that are sure to make this summer season a bit more fun and whimsical.

From jewelry making, to magic, to yoga and wine; the classes are sure to inspire your creative mind, and turn your summer into something truly special.

For those looking to create their own jewelry, the workshops happening through the summer offer an assortment of lessons to teach you the basics of jewelry making. Heart of Glass (July 22) focuses on pendant making, by teaching the fundamentals of making glass beads and then putting those skills to use in creating a heart shaped pendant that can become the uniquely stunning focal point in a piece of jewelry. While Wire Weaving (Aug. 12) will teach you how to embellish a handmade glass heart bead with three different kinds of wire weaving techniques, to create a beautifully finished pendant.

Wow friends and family, and make those summer barbecues all the more exciting with Closeup Magic (Aug. 2). The Fraser Valley Magic Circle and International Brotherhood of Magicians’ Steve Dickson will teach you how to use close-up magic and everyday household items, that will entertain and delight anyone you show this summer.

And while you’re entertaining guests in your backyard, why not decorate your garden with your very own Garden Markers (July 11)? Customizing your own markers makes them truly unique through the use of metal stamps, wire, and beads. It’s a fun and inventive way to recycle old cutlery, giving your garden a very personal touch.

Treat yourself to an evening of relaxation, with Body, Wine, Jewels (July 18 to Aug. 15). Unwind after a long work day with a yoga session, sample snacks, local wine, and by designing and creating your own pair of earrings. The perfect combination makes for an evening that is sure to rejuvenate you.

If you’re looking for a creative outlet to practice your skills the Open Clay Studio and Open Glass Studio provide a range of days throughout the week, making it easy to find a time that works for you. The open studios are non-instructional sessions and are perfect for anyone short on time with a desire to construct and create.

Private classes for either small groups or individuals can also be arranged — perfect for birthday parties, girls’ nights out, or getting the hang of that one tricky medium in one-on-one instruction with one of our talented instructors.

Registration for all classes is now available. For more information or to register for a class, visit www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca, call 604-391-SHOW(7469), or stop by the Centre Box Office (9201 Corbould Street, Chilliwack).
