Langley's first ever Family Day Arts Festival gave young people a chance to try out various art styles and methods as well as see where the arts can take people.
Booked to perform were professional arts groups - indigenous dance and theatre troupe Red Sky, history performing group the Canadiana Musical Theatre Co., mime Dianna David and hip hop dance troupe Project Soul.
Throughout the day the kids could try out belly and other forms of dance, photography, storytelling, crafts, jewelry making, 2D and 3D art projects, drama, and music.
Open to kids ages four to 12 from throughout the Lower Mainland, the event was hosted by the Langley Fine Arts School at the Chief Sepass Theatre as part of its ArtsMatter lecture and workshop series.
This weekend saw B.C.'s first Family Day and the plan is for the locally created festival to become an annual event on the new February holiday.
