Sylvan Lakers enjoy day of music and painting

Adults and kids were able to experience programming provided by the Town of Sylvan Lake’s Art in the Park

“Who wouldn’t want to pick up a paint brush and paint by the lake?” asked art instructor Stacey Palmer at Art in the Park’s acrylic painting day on Wednesday, August 10.

This was the fourth event in three weeks at Centennial Park where dozens of adults and kids were able to experience programming provided by the Town of Sylvan Lake’s Art in the Park.The summer has been full of multiple activities and programs, that have greatly improved the experience in 2016.

Organizer Kaelon Glowatski was thrilled with the results she has seen this year.

“I think Art in the Park has been very exciting,” she said. “We have had a lot of excellent performers, especially when we worked together with Centrefest in Red Deer.”

This partnership allowed for Art in the Park to bring in exciting musical acts and performers that would have previously been unavailable to them, including the Joel Kamps Duo who performed during the art instruction on this day.

Palmer was excited to help guide artists, both young and old, towards new works of art.

“If they want guidelines, we can give them some they can paint a picture of the lake, the scenery, people, cartoons,” she said. “Really, anyone can come and grab a canvas and paint whatever.”

Palmer added that people walking by were excited for the day and that she loves to live in Sylvan Lake and that to have events like this.

“People can come with their families and do something that doesn’t cost anything,” she added.

Glowatski is excited for what Art in the Park offered this year and what it has in store for the future.

“Mostly in the past we had calm, quiet events but this year we reached out to those performers who came from places like Israel and Australia,” she said. “I think next year, will be bigger and better. We will see where it takes us.

Palmer added that Art in the Park seems like it has been a huge success in 2016.
