What is Prairie Ripples?

Started in 2007 to create an awareness of hidden local talent,
Prairie Ripples is a dynamic group of individuals who promote the arts by
sharing their skills, techniques and enthusiasm for art.


The Art Tour, which has been running for 11 years,
is taking a break in 2018.

Mark Your Calendar to engage with Ripples members at these upcoming events:


hosted by Prairie Ripples & the Portage & District Arts Centre

December 13, 2018
at the Portage & District Arts Centre, 6:30 to 8:00

Come and join Prairie Ripples artists for an evening of collaborative art making.

Remember to bring your finished block from last month to add to the group piece.
The blocks are a continuing project that carries on from month to month.
If you weren't able to make it last time, no problem . . . there are plenty of blocks left.
We are hoping to continue this project in the new year,
and would like to have the evolving work on public display.

Everyone is invited to take a picture with the
beautiful wings made at last month's session.
They are currently in the Galleria of the
William Glesby Centre building . . . .
now's the perfect time to pop in and pose for pic!


As well this month, we will be working on styrofoam prints.
Create your own unique room image, then put
it together with the other designs to make a house interior.

 Free admission. Just bring a pencil.

 Everyone is welcome to come and participate. 
Artists 12 years old and younger, please bring an adult with you.

 No need to sign up, just come and check it out. PDAC and Prairie Ripples artists look forward to seeing you at this fun evening of creative exploration, sharing and learning.

For more information email Yvette or Heather.
