The Art Lab

An example of a previous Art Lab mural and activity set-up.

The Art Lab is a space where the community can engage with art in a hands-on way during their Gallery visit.

Self-guided activities (suitable for all ages and abilities) are provided for Gallery visitors in the Art Lab space. These activities are designed with current exhibitions in mind and allow visitors to explore art materials and processes whilst reflecting on the exhibition.

Current Activities:


Paper Mural | Add your own coloured paper to our collage landscape mural inspired by Takao Tanabe: Printmaker. Follow the simple ‘paint by numbers’ style instructions. All you need are scissors and glue.

We provide all the materials and full instructions.





Postcard Prints | Come and print your own postcard inspired by Takao Tanabe’s Cut Corners series of works.  Use stamps and ink pads to create an abstract or landscape card.  All supplies are provided.






Watercolour Landscapes| Come and try your hand at painting a watercolour landscape inspired by the world around you. This activity is inspired by British-born Okanagan artists Nellie Duke and Sophie Atkinson and the exhibition Geography Lessons. All supplies are provided.
