The Community Activities Group of Old Ottawa East (CAG) is excited to be bringing Play Reading to Old Ottawa East this winter! Registration is open now for classes that will start in late January on Thursday afternoons at Brantwood Park field house. Why not join us in reading aloud and laughing aloud each week?

The group will cover a wide range of styles and stories and look into the fascinating background of the play. Plays are chosen in collaboration with the class, sometimes the classics are chosen and sometimes a choice is made just because its fun!

Weekday - Creative Photography: Old Ottawa East

This series of workshops focuses on developing greater photographic expertise and creativity. Each participant will work on a project of their own choice that has a theme focused on the community of Old Ottawa East. How and what to choose as a project will be discussed in the first class. Each week we will look at the pictures selected from those taken during the week and discuss what might be tried next. At the end final selections for a small print exhibition in the community will be discussed.
Instructor: Jim Lamont has been involved with photography since 1977. He has had three articles with his photographs in the Canadian Geographic, including a cover photograph, and has also been published in a variety of other magazines, a book and a calendar.
