We are proud to present Free Flow Fun Art. Please note that there is no requirement to be an inspired, educated or a gifted artist. This workshop is for a fun and a time to relax.
There will be no judging or critiquing of any art produced. Your art work will be original and as unique as you are.
Sharon Bell has been a creative face painter for 20 years. She has traveled to educate herself by professional face artists from around the world.
As Sharon developed her love for face painting something happened. She started to paint one of kind unique paintings. To her surprise she was accepted into many art shows. In 2016 she won a Jurors Choice Award at the Kawartha Art Gallery.
Saying this she goes with no preconceived idea when she starts to paint. She lets the thoughts go from her soul, to her head and out her finger tips. The Free Flow approach that is always rewarding, fulfilling and fun.
She encourages everyone to try Free Flow Art. Many people will say I can’t paint. Everyone can paint!!! We were all born with an artistic ability. Its that fluff ball in your head that says you can’t paint. Don’t listen to that little fluff ball you can paint and you can enjoy painting.

Lauren Vivian (LOON) Review of the Brownie Un Birthday Party
I was so impressed. The girls had an amazing time.
Checkers kept things moving very well and got everyone involved.
We loved the jokes and magic.
I heard from parents that kids where very excited to tell them all about the party.
I had only found out Thursday that there have been some terrible people
dressing as clowns. I wasn’t sure how things would go but you are the
furthest thing from scary. This party ended up being very good timing.
Checkers made a lot of girls believe in magic.
Thank you again for everything.
I will be happy to keep promoting you to anyone who might need a
little Checkers in their party.
Best wishes for a safe and happy fall.
Checkers Entertainment was invited to an UnBirthday Party for Brownies
and Girl Guides in Beaverton.
What a Great Idea! Everyone celebrated birthdays together as a Team!
Checkers came in her festive attire and presented a Fun Family Show.
She provided singing, magic, story telling, audience participation and
Great Big Belly Laughs!
Prior to the event the leaders prepared Checkers colouring sheet for a contest.
Checkers judged all the beautiful colouring sheets. She just could not choose a
“Winner”. Checkers asked the Brownies and Girl Guilds if they thought they
could all be “Winners”. The girls agreed they could all be Winners.
Everyone went home proudly with custom “Winner” ribbons from Checkers.
What a send off home knowing that each girl was a “WINNER” .
Several years ago, I entered a Clowns Canada contest. Contest participants were asked to send in a slogan or a pledge.
I submitted the “Checkers Promise”, and won!
I wrote the “Checkers Promise” for our children’s workshops. Entertainers at Checkers Entertainment Services wanted a way to encourage all participants (children and adults) to have respect for one another. Sometimes the best inspiration is when you least expect it, I woke up out of a sleep one night and wrote this promise:
CHECKERS AWARD WINNING PROMISE:
Put Your Hand Over Your Heart,
And Repeat The Following:
I promise to be good,
To have fun,
To have respect for other people,
Look at everyone and and Smile!
and to make the world a happier place to live.
Now Look At Everyone And Smile!!!!!
Developing a Unique Character
Presented by Sharon(Bookie) Bell
What makes you different form every other entertainer/actor/musician/clown? You’re unique personally and character which is supported and enhanced by the makeup used and clothes worn. Yet, being a character involves more than just putting on some makeup and a costume, your personality or flavour that you add distinguishes you from all the other entertainers and makes you recognizable.
Your character is a person you create with personality traits likes and dislikes, goals and desires, strengths and weakness. Your character has a unique way of looking at the world. That personality should connect in some way with who you are. It might be an exaggeration of your own personality traits. It might be driven by a wish fulfillment, or an expression of your sense of humour.
To be really successful creating a character, you must find the character that is in you. This is what makes developing your character difficult. You must find it in yourself. Nobody else can tell you what it should be. Being in makeup and costume can free inhibitions. This may give a quiet person the freedom to be boisterous, but a quiet person can’t force himself to be boisterous because somebody said he should. Your character has to be a personality you like and are comfortable with, because you will spend a lot of time being that character.
Character Development Workshops are offered January and February of each year. Booking dates fill up quickly. Email by October 1 to reserve your class workshop.
We’re pleased to offer the Checkers Drama Program. This program will assist with the necessary steps to create a fun character, make that character real and the art of learning to perform. The program touches on building self-esteem, respecting other people, the importance of education and making an entertainment career a reality.
This program is available year round. Contact us for more details.
