Britannia Heritage Shipyards is offering a series of Spring Break activities starting this weekend.

Rain is making a comeback in Richmond after a couple of sunny days, but Richmondites won't have to worry about a boring weekend. Here are a couple of events that may just tempt community members to brave the rain:

1. Make friends while making a collage with artist Sandeep Johal

Canadian visual artist Sandeep Johal will be leading a collaborative art game called the Exquisite Corpse, where participants take turns drawing and collaging a section of a figure before concealing it and passing it onto the next person. Johal will be demonstrating her drawing and collage techniques and all materials will be provided. Online registration is required due to limited seating.

Date and time: March 11, 2023 (1 to 4 p.m.)

Place: Richmond Art Gallery, 7700 Minoru Gate
