Saanich Parks and Recreation, Island Illustrators Society and The Al Frescoes

The Al Frescoes are individual artists who share the companionship of painting outside, coming together to paint on Fridays in different locations across Greater Victoria. The Saanich Culture Days hub is organized by Saanich Parks and Recreation and The Island Illustrators Society. Island Illustrators fosters interest in the art of illustration. For Culture Days, Island Illustrators use their gifts to illustrate the wonder and value of all arts forms for creator and recipient. Working in partnership with the community, Saanich Parks and Recreation creates opportunities for enrichment that support health and well-being through arts and culture and other activities. In Saanich, Community Services and The Arts Centre at Cedar Hill have teamed up to help support Culture Days.
