Kompany Family Theatre performed secrets of the Creepy Crawlies at the library Saturday as part of Alberta Culture Days. The play, a series of scenes, was about composting and recycling.

For Alberta Culture Days the Morinville Art Club hosted a Landscape Paint Night. The sold-out event was held at the Morinville Community Cultural Centre on Friday.

Morinville Art Club President Rozanna McConnell, a Certified (Bob) Ross Landscape Instructor (CRI), provided the instructional techniques. Assistance was also provided from Art Club members Mona Bouchard and Francis Pelletier.

With paint on pallette paper and paint colour acronyms beside each colour, a palette knife and paint thinner was used to do the art.
