We need to replace our smoke detectors and keep the lights on. By purchasing a membership or making a small donation, you help us maintain your community arts centre. We need to raise $1700 to do this.

We also plan to add a discreet music system to the gallery spaces to add to the Sunbury Shores experience. And we will need another $2600 to make this happen. All donations, whether large or small, are welcome!

I want to help!

What’s going on right now at the centre?

For Students of Sir James Dunn Academy participating in C.L.A.S.S. (Children

Learning Art at Sunbury Shores) (C.L.A.S.S.), are starting 4-weeks of Painting & Drawing with St. Andrews artist Theresa MacKnight. This is the first of four different sessions - each session a different arts discipline taught by a professional artist.

At this stage, the students are priming their canvases with gesso and sketching out their chosen images which will be the groundwork to paint on. We’ll show you the results in the next newsletter. Stay tuned!
