March 31 | Brush Free Painting
Explore the wonderful world of brush-free painting using eye droppers, vivid fluid-acrylic paints, and watercolour paper. For this week’s activity, young artists will use Landon Mackenzie’s work, featured in The Poetics of Space exhibition, as their muse to create vibrant abstract masterpieces.
April 7 | Painting in the Round
Using the circular motif that David Wilson uses in his exhibition Water Travels a Cycle at the Gallery’s airport satellite space, young artists will create a small circular painting on canvas using acrylic paints and imagery from nature.
April 14 | Shoebox Spaces
Based on the ideas of space explored within the exhibition The Poetics of Space, participants will use shoeboxes, decorative papers, and drawing materials to create a unique 3D diorama of a place from their imagination.
April 21 | Spring Tote Bags
To celebrate Easter weekend, young artists will create one-of-a-kind tote bags using a monoprinting technique. Pastel and neon printmaking inks will be applied to a plexi-glass plate and run through a printing press to transfer a spring image onto the tote bag.
April 28 | Community Canvas
This week young artists will explore the theme of community for this year’s Art in Action student exhibition. A large canvas, painting materials, and a mystery jar of creative prompts will be provided to create a large-scale collaborative work of art. This activity is intended to encourage interaction among participants. *Additional smaller canvases will be available should participants want to create a work to take home.
