It’s a welcome splash of colour and artistic creativity at this time of year.

Paints ‘n Bloom takes place Dec. 7 and 8 (10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days) at the West Coast Garden Centre in South Surrey.

Artworks by Audrey Bakewell and Wendy Mould will be on display at the two-day event, which is in support of the Alzheimer Society of B.C.

The artists are also offering the following free demos on Friday, Dec. 7: Bringing Animals to Life in Graphite with Wendy Mould starts at 11 a.m.;  and Painting on Yupo Paper with Watercolour led by Audrey Blackwell is at 1:30 p.m.

A facilitator will be on hand on Dec. 8 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. to offer support and information on the society’s education series and support groups.

A portion of all sales will go to the Alzheimer Society of B.C.
