At this time of year when we welcome back the light, so desperately needed after a couple of dark years, it can be helpful to find colourful and enjoyable means of reducing stress levels. As stress levels may be at an all-time high, it is fortunate for us in the Elk Valley that there is also an ever-increasing amount of art available to enjoy in the form of public art as well as small, local galleries popping up, but also in opportunities to learn about different medias and produce art.
