The fourth annual summer arts school workshops program of the Summer Arts Scene For Youth in Central Okanagan Society came to what organizers called a “dazzling” culminating showcase finale Aug. 17 at George Elliot Secondary School and Creekside Theatre in Lake Country.

SASFY, and its ever growing popular August summer arts program for youth ages 8-16, experienced a record year of student enrolment surpassing organizers expectations this year.

Students, clad in bright yellow self-custom-designed T-shirts, along with a very supportive and enthusiastic crowd, jam-packed the theatre to experience an outpouring of unique creativity in a diverse variety of arts disciplines—photography, egg writing, culinary arts, urban and contemporary dance, native crafts, animation, mixed media, woodworking, theatre, painting, voice, quilling, adventures in clay and fashion design.

Vibrantly coloured and boldly textured art work filled the foyer along with a SASFY fundraising arts card booth and especially designed and created student arts projects to help support the SASFY Kids Helping Kids Fund for local talented youth in financial need to participate in SASFY in 2014.

Energetic dance performances, wow effect photography and clever animation presentations on the big screen also entertained the audience.

Plans are already underway for the fifth SASFY program in 2014 with 15 original and new workshops in the planning stages.

SASFY executive director Claudia Kargl said she was very pleased with this year’s workshops and her group remains committed to top quality educational arts instruction and unique creative opportunities for youth.
