Wonder'neath Open Studio is a welcoming creative community space open to the public. Skilled community arts/artist facilitators on hand and tons of wonderful materials. All ages.
The Art Bikers program for this summer has now ended. We had a great summer meeting lots of new people and epxloring new communities. Thanks to everyone who welcomed us so warmly and to all the children and others who "got creative" with us. Lots of great photos on our Facebook page or blog to check out. Be sure to visit. Thank you to all our community supporters and special thanks to the Art Bikers staff: Jyelle Vogel, Merle Harley, Eric Diolola, Evan Cameron and Wil Brask. Well done!
As of March 2015, because of changes to the HRM Community Arts program, 4Cs has suspended its grant program for Neighbourhood Intersection Painting and Placemaking projects. All projects approved before this date will still receive their funding grant from 4Cs. For more information on the changes to the HRM Community Arts program contact the Halifax Recreation Manager.
We love maps! And we love sharing what we've done with you. Visit these maps to learn about the community arts projects supported by the 4Cs Foundation since 1999 and all the communities visited by the Art Bikers since 2007. Both maps are works in progress and do not yet reflect our full history. We're working on it - but twe couldn't wait to share!

We had such a good time last summer opening up the studio and inviting folks in to make bicycle rim art with us that we are doing it again!
Two dates this year: June 7 and June 14th Noon to 4:30 pm.
June 7th WHEELS is also part in the 100 in 1 Day Halifax event and we are also celebrating the beginning of Bike Week.
Join us in transforming bike rims into mandalas of colour and texture. Use your creativity to transform a bicycle wheel using any types of materials. Your wheel will become part of a large installation outside the Art Bikers studio in the entryway to the 4Cs Foundation.
How to participate:
Join the Art Bikers at the studio on Saturday June 7 and/or June 14 Noon to 4:30 pm to transform your wheel and help with the installation.
We will have bicycle rims and all kinds of art-making materials - but feel free to bring your own materials to add to the collection!
For more information: Jyelle Vogel at firstname.lastname@example.org or 422-4805
The Art Bikers Studio is in the 4Cs Foundation office at Suite 104 5663 Cornwallis St, Halifax
