Get creative at Kent Street

Collaging is one way to get going again when your life feels stuck and you can’t find your next move.

By engaging in collage work, students will first observe visuals created by collecting and arranging their own taste in images.

Next, students will contemplate in writing what their finished work means to them, and how the work might apply to their lives.

Connect With your Inner Artist: Creating Collage is offered at Kent Street Centre in three one-hour sessions, Aug. 11-25.

To register, call 604-541-2231.

Keep active over the summer with the many fitness classes available.

Learn Latin-inspired dance steps in our Zumba, Zumba Gold and Zumba Toning classes for a fun, upbeat workout. Drop in to our Keep Fit for 55+ classes and participate in a light aerobics workout, or at the Centre for Active Living for the Cardio Circuit for 55+.

Not sure where to begin when establishing some new fitness goals? This is a great place to start and go at your own pace and comfort level.

Purchase a drop-in pass for various class time slots and attend when it’s convenient for you.

Please call 604-541-2199 for more information and locations.
