Still Spots Left!

This cold, rainy september afternoon is a harsh reminder of the winter days that are just around the corner. The great summer we had has come and gone and so has the fall fun fair at SAC. Thursday turned out great the bouncer, BBQ, and face paints were a big hit! But lucky for you if you couldn't make it - It is not to late to register. There are still spots left in most of our classes so if you couldn't make it on Thursday stop by the office or call SAC and they will be happy to register you.

SAC has also started their exhibit season off on a great note. Eleanore Johnson's In the Wake of Disaster fills the SAC hall gallery. Her works are created from a handful of different mediums including acrylics, graphite and pastels. She uses photographs as her inspiration to create the beautiful and emotionally charged works that are displayed.

Next weekend on Saturday September 10th watch Cars 2 under the stars at A.D Penner park, the movie starts at 8pm but come for dinner and support the Steinbach Arts Council. ThereI encourage you to stop by to see them as they are definitely worth the trip down.will be face painting and entertainment - don't miss this family event.

For now,


Fall Fun Fair

The end is in sight - day camps are wrapping up and I am looking forward to fall. My new classes have titles like "Russian History", "Modern to Contemporary Art" and "Early Renaissance Architecture". The reality of finally finishing my undergrad is starting to kick in. But that isn't until April and I have 30 very busy weeks until then.

September is right around the corner and I feel as if August slipped through my fingers. I only made it out to the beach once this summer but the camps helped be throughly enjoy the great weather. Saying that - I couldn't help but restock my school supplies yesterday. There is something about september that shows so much promise. Perhaps it is the changing of the seasons that ignite this fresh start or maybe it is the connection to childhood memories that bring upon these autumn aspirations. September brought many surprises for me growing up; A new teacher or school, graduating from the thursday curling class to the tuesday one(I was quite the athlete), moving up a row in the SYC choir room and of course making new friends. I encourage you to make this September as exciting as it used to be instead of concentrating on the obvious stresses.

Next week at SAC we have our Annual Fall Registration and Fun Fair. We have over 60 different classes to choose from. Creative classes are good for people of all ages. If you are interested in signing your child up for an after school class consider dance, theatre or one of our many visual arts classes.

We have options for adults as well, enjoy a water colour class or learn the pottery wheel. Another option that SAC offers that not many people know about are our wellness classes. Take part in yoga, zumba, pilates and other fitness classes.

Events: Concert Series tickets will be on sale soon - so be sure to renew your ticket package or purchase a new one.

Volunteers: SAC is looking for brochure drop volunteers - great if you are looking for an excuse to go for a walk.

SAC is already planning for their upcoming fundraiser, the ChristmasHome Tour and Tea – and looking for homes to feature in this exciting annual event!If you have a home that you would like to feature or showcase, or love to decorate andshare that spirit with the community, please email us, or call us and our committee wouldlove to connect with you. We are looking for five homes of all styles and designs tofeature – the event is held in November, so plenty of time to prepare.

So be sure to stop by On September 1st to meet instructors, learn more about classes and register for our fall programs. There will be face painting, balloons and hot dogs.

I hope to see you there,


Long Hot Summer, Anxious for Fall.

This long, hot, dry summer has truly been a blessing for me over at SAC. Running the day camps this summer has been tons of fun and the great weather has been a contributor to the success of each week. Along of course with my two lovely assistants and each child that has attended. We have been back in time, we celebrated each holiday, set sail on a pirate ship for the pioneer day's parade, made a ton of crafts from only recycled materials, hit home runs at Southwood school and tomorrow we are going to the fire hall! I can't believe that after this week we only have one week of camp left - Year 3000! Now, I must say that I have been waiting for this camp all summer because even adults want to dress up as robots, explore the planets and make our own spaceships.

There are still a few spots left in our last and final camp of the summer and it's going to be a good one!

With school starting up again next month I have a lot on my mind. Not only will I be swarmed with my reading list but I will once again be teaching theatre at the Steinbach Arts Council. I am thrilled to tell you that enrollment is up and we haven't even had our fall registration day yet - Which is on the first of September.
