Creative Aging Awareness Day was held at the Rotary Centre for the Arts (RCA) in Kelowna, BC on Friday June 20, 2014. Its mission was “A day-long celebration of your creative life to examine the role that creative expression can play in promoting engagement, healing and wellness for all ages.”
On the approach, I saw HeART Fit painters. HeART Fit is a free drop-in session of Spontaneous Process Painting every Tuesday at the RCA.
It was very busy inside with musical entertainment and creative arts filling the main floor.
The exhibits continued through to the back hall.
There was a weaving demonstration by the Ponderosa Spinners, Weavers & Fibre Artists.
Glass and metal artist Fay Wolfenden had a display of hand-made glass beads, jewellery and mosaics.
Lucie Parent demonstrated her Funky Fabric Sculptures made using Paverpol. She is a Certified Paverpol Instructor.
The Okanagan Quilter’s Guild seemed to be having a lot of fun.
Their display of Fibre Art Journals were especially intriguing.
Jill promoted Learning in Retirement programs.
There was information about the Sing for Your Life Foundation.
It was a busy and well-attended event with many inspiring creative organizations to follow up on!
