More than 200 visual and performing artists were joined by several thousand people on the one-way strip of Fraser Highway for the 25th annual Arts Alive festival on Saturday.
Artists and artisans come from around the region and beyond to take part alongside local community groups that want to showcase their artist side, and downtown businesses.
For the past four years, New Directions English Language School has had a booth at Arts Alive.
Spokesperson Yvonne Hopp explained that the school provides the space for its adult students who are learning English to showcase their art. This year’s artists included a samba dancer, painters, a woman who makes custom clay sculptures, and a photographer.
She said the event is a chance for the students to meet lots of people, practice their language skills, learn how to market their art, and get to know the community.
