On Our Radar: A canvas of COVID-safe programs for kids at Prince George’s art gallery

Painting, sculpting and everything in between

A pandemic may have changed some aspects of children's education, but it hasn't stopped them from expanding their creativity.

The Two Rivers Gallery in Prince George has unveiled its winter 2021 slate of in-person classes for kids and youth aged five to 14, providing opportunities to safely learn various art skills across the spectrum.

The facility explains, with all courses scheduled on the docket between Jan. 23 and March 13, COVID-19 safety measures will be followed to the letter.

This includes mandatory masks, a limited number of spaces per program, physical distancing and cleaning protocols.

Two Rivers says all available programs are subject to change depending on any changes that could be made with provincial orders and guidelines.
