Out and About: 'Spectacular' dragon and lion dances part of kids arts festival in Richmond

Children were able to try printmaking, stop-motion animation and creating paper pin-prick lanterns.

Family Day in Richmond was celebrated with an excellent, diverse series of events for children, ranging from Air Dry Clay Creations to Weaving Wonders.   

Music from dynamic performers filled the Brighouse library and the wonderful day was capped with spectacular Lion and Dragon Dances.   

Imagination Stations offered children the opportunity to try their hand — under the guidance of skilled artists— at creations, including printmaking, stop motion animation, paper pin-prick lanterns and surreal face water colour painting.

Hundreds of families participated in the events, which took place in the Richmond Cultural Centre.

The event — started in 2008 — was the brainchild of Debbie Tobbin, a Richmond kindergarten teacher.
