You can play a part in designing artwork for the Richmond Cultural Centre.

Artists Richard Tetrault and Jerry Whitehead, commissioned by the Richmond Public Art Program, will lead five free stencil-making workshops from Tuesday, July 23 to Saturday, July 27. Your designs will be considered for the final mural design, which covers about 1,000 linear feet of the perimeter of the cultural centre at 7700 Minoru Gate.

To help increase the likelihood of your stencil design being used in the mural, note that the art aims to reflect the community and the vibrant arts and cultural activities of the building. 

The free workshops are offered as drop-in sessions for the public. Children under 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.

• Tuesday, July 23, noon to 4 p.m. (all ages), Richmond Cultural Centre Plaza

• Wednesday, July 24, noon to 4 p.m. (parents and children), Richmond Cultural Centre, Rooftop Garden

• Thursday, July 25, 10 a.m. to noon (all ages), Richmond Public Library Brighouse Branch

Tetrault and Whitehead have extensive experience in executing large-scale mural projects and artist-initiated community programs in the Lower Mainland. They’ve also worked as Artists-In-Residence with the Vancouver School Board, ArtStarts in schools and other organizations.
