Inspired by Susan Menzies’ exhibition Wally Dugs, you will be making a portrait of your dog, your friends’ dog, or you favourite breed of dog, using watercolour paints.
July 31 | Nature Sketchbooks
Celebrate the outdoors this summer with your very own nature sketchbook. Using a variety of materials, we will create collages to cover our books and fill our pages with nature-inspired sketches. The Get to Know program will be on site to assist with the project and encourage participants to take part in the Get to Know Contest. The contest invites youth ages 19 and under to enter their nature-inspired entries for a chance to win some wild prizes and be featured in an online Gallery.
