The Second Annual Artists Retreat at Rocky View Ota will be canceled unless registration numbers pick up. Co-organizer Leanne Pickering, program event coordinator for the Flin Flon Indian-Metis Friendship Centre, said the retreat needs a minimum of 20 registrants. So far, about 12 people have signed up, she said. The retreat has been scheduled for September 13 and 14 and would feature five workshops organized by guest artists, most of them from out of town. The workshops would focus on watercolours, scrapbooking, hair tufting and acrylics, soapstone sculpting, and how to make willow chairs. At an extra cost, artists are invited sign up for pampering in the form of a massage, manicure and/or pedicure. Pickering commented that the retreat is for artists of all skill levels and added that she hopes people won't miss out on this opportunity. The Friendship Centre and the Flin Flon Arts Council have teamed up to organize the retreat. The deadline to register will be this Monday, September 8. For more information or to sign up, call Leanne at 687-8855 or Paulette 687-5974.
