Christina Lake Arts & Artisans Society (aka CLAAS) is a charitable organization whose mandate is to Celebrate and Energize our community through the Arts. We do this in a number of ways; first, we spearheaded the design, construction, and fundraising for the new Welcome Centre (formerly known as the Christina Living Arts Centre) here at Christina Lake. Since its opening in 2011, it has become a focal point of the community, and home to our Arts on 3 Gallery. It also is the location for our numerous free workshops and classes in the arts and the base for our Summer Concert Series, which draws 100’s of locals and visitors out to see and hear top notch performances, both inside and out back in the Park. See our website www.christinalakearts.com for full information.
The Arts on 3 Gallery is located in the Welcome Centre and is a great source of artwork, gifts and inspiration. The Gallery hosts over 30 local and regional artists, plus a selection of international Glassblowers. The artists include painters, photographers, potters, wood turners and carvers, metal work, handmade jewelry and much more. There is also a great selection of artistic cards, chocolates, and glass ornaments to make gift shopping so easy! Come in and see our featured Artist, or join one of the many creative workshops and classes that run throughout the year.
