Public Skates & Public Swims are Changing to a Registered Program

With the ongoing popularity of our public skates and public swims and limited number of patrons we can accommodate on the ice and in the pool we will now be asking patrons to register in advance for the public skate or public swim they would like to attend. Each public skate and public swim will be opened 48-hours in advance to register.

Youth Action Sparwood is pleased to offer this one-day program in which youth will learn about abstract art history and the mural design process and build their skills. The afternoon will feature a collaborative mural, done on a large piece of canvas, using artist-grade materials. The mural will be guided by abstract artist Troy Cook, informed by the collaborative process used by Keith Haring in creating “We the Youth,” an iconic public art installation in Philadelphia.

Troy’s design will use motifs to represent mental health and support. The participants will each be responsible for one core element of the mural, and will complete each element using the skills refined in the morning design explorations.

Lunch will be provided catered by Crumbs Cakery.
