March 24 - Robin Song

Arlene will share the origin story of her Kitsumkalum community that tell the unique ties the community has with Robin and the messages of hope that continue to inspire. We will also learn the word for Robin in our local indigenous Hul’q’umi’num.  Using black craft paper we will cut out robin shapes and glue tissue paper to create unique suncatchers that encourage and welcome the return of our Robin friends at this time of year. 

Do you have a LEAP card? Your child may be eligible for a bursary. Two LEAP spots are available each week; one per family. Each family is welcome to use up to 2 LEAP spots per month.

Maximum program enrollment is 12 students. All phone reservations must be paid prior to 5 pm the Friday before Saturday Studio. Walk-in payments are accepted until 9:15 am Saturday if space allows. 



Saturday Studio is generously sponsored by RBC Royal Bank.
