Arts & CultureArts & Culture

Reflecting on our incredibly creative and fun year so far with our Cherryville kiddos! Huge shout out to Stephanie Bellows for making a huge difference in our Cherryville community and offering a range of engaging Arts & Culture sessions for our youth.

Explore the Continents (September-October): Discovering art from around the world! Cherryville youth explored traditional folk art techniques from Africa, South America, North America, Australia and more, working on cool multi cultural creations as they learn more about the world around them.

Elements of Art (November-December): Exploring all the elements of art! Line, Shape, Value, Form, Colour & Texture

Recycled City (January-February): Focusing on inspiring and encouraging students to use their imagination and work together with their peers in creating a masterpiece called Recycled City. Touching on the importance of recycling and find opportunities within these sessions to work on self esteem, inter-personal skills and relationship building. Focusing on effort and accomplishments, teaching positive self-talk, encouragement to try new things and setting goals.

New Freezer Door!New Freezer Door!

Thanks to Food Banks Canada, we now have a freezer safe door installed to safely store all of our perishable items. Our freezer has on average 1500-3000lbs of frozen food that is distributed to Cherryville residents through monthly hampers and food security programs. We are so grateful to have this new door installed because we no longer have to worry about losing any perishable items due to inadequate equipment. Thank you again Food Banks Canada, we are absolutely thrilled with our new door!
