Join the RRC Students’ Association and Healthy Minds Healthy College for paint night!
What is Paint Night?
Paint Night has become very popular in the last couple of years, but if you’ve never been to paint night before, you may find yourself wondering what it is! Paint night is a creative way to hang out with your friends and create a beautiful piece of art.
You Learn to Paint
At paint night, you learn to paint. Whether you’re a complete beginner or a pro painter, there will be an instructor to guide you the whole time! Everyone in the class is working toward creating their own version of the same painting. The teacher will lead you through your painting step-by-step. This paint night will last two hours.
Painting is really good for you! Paint night is great for people who love to try new things, meet new people, and explore new sides to themselves.

On Wednesday November 10, Red River College Polytechnic (RRC Polytech) announced an Anishinaabemowin (Ojibwe) name for its newest building at the Exchange District Campus.
Manitou a bi Bii daziigae (in Anishinaabemowin (Ojibwe)) is the first RRC Polytech building to receive an Indigenous name. Manitou a bi Bii daziigae was previously known as the Innovation Centre project.
The name was presented by RRC Polytech Elders-in-Residence. Each Elder brings with them a lifetime of experiences, stories, ceremonial gifts, and lessons they’ve collected; each a rarity unto themselves, and we can’t thank the Elders enough for this new name and what they bring to our community.
The name Manitou a bi Bii daziigae translates to where creator sits (Manitou a bi) and brings light (Bii daziigae), and both parts have layers of deeper meaning and symbolism.
