ArtPontiac brings out your inner artist!
The Pontiac Artists’ Association, a non-profit organization, promotes art and culture across MRC Pontiac through various programs, all under the brand artPontiac.
This year, artPontiac invites residents and visitors to see the excellent and varied exhibitions and shows on every weekend from June until October at the Stone School Gallery in Portage-du-Fort, on the Ottawa River. The artists encourage you to uncover your own creativity by taking one of the courses offered at the Pontiac School of the Arts. You can try your hand at watercolour or printmaking (various levels), create art you can walk on, with the Floor Cloths course, or learn how to turn a story idea into a screenplay.
ArtPontiac also invites everyone to come out to their Art Socials, on the second Saturday of every month. There’s fun, with music, art, conversation, laughter, community and potluck treats! 6:00 - 9:00 pm at the Stone School Gallery. Free for members; $5 for non-members.
There’s something for everyone with artPontiac this summer. Check out artpontiac.com for more details on where and when each show, event or course its held — and how to become a member.
