Fire and Ice 2014FIRE & ICE FESTIVAL
Sat. January 25 & Sun. January 26, 2014
Alton Mill Arts Centre
Alton, Ontario
Bring the whole family to this arts-rich weekend with true Canadian flavour.
“WORDS OF FIRE”: Make your mark at Fire & Ice! Join CJ Shelton in Studio 206 and help create a collective word ‘mandala’, a circular design made up entirely of written words. Meaningful words can carry amazing energy and “fire”, especially when they are written in a circular format. In a collective mandala many people add their words to a single piece which becomes vibrant with the energy of all those who have contributed to it. When the piece is finished its collective message radiates out into the world. So bring your words and make your mark! No artistic skill necessary. Let’s create some artistic warmth for a cold winter weekend! This is a free activity for all ages.
