Ice cream combined with art

Tuesday event to combine treats and arts

An event in the CAW Student Centre will combine a complimentary ice cream bar and live demonstrations of the arts on Tuesday, March 21.

The Ice Cream Social will showcase student talents, says organizer Sandra Riccio-Muglia, director of programs for the centre.

“This event is a collaboration with students from the School of Creative Arts to bring out a sample art studio with easels and supplies,” she says. “We will host a model in the middle on a stage and the art students will teach other students perspective art.”

Student paintings and other artworks will be available for purchase.

“It gives the artists the opportunity to highlight their creative department this side of campus and allows more exposure to their art as well,” Riccio-Muglia says. “Think of it like a casual interactive art in the park with a free ice cream twist.”

The event will take place 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Commons area.
