Due to Covid-19, the Vernon Public Art Gallery is happy to bring you our popular family programming virtually!
Join us via Zoom to engage in an accessible and fun art activity inspired by our current exhibitions.
Kelsie, our Learning and Community Engagement Curator will start the workshop off by touring the current exhibition that is on display. She will then walk you through a hands-on art activity inspired by the artwork.
After registering for the workshop, participants are encouraged to stop by the gallery to grab accompanying art kits filled with supplies for the hands-on activity component. Contactless pickup will be in place and participants will receive instructions via email once registered.
The cost is $5 for members or $9 for non-members.
upcoming family saturdays
Join us this month for a tour of David and Jorden Doody’s exhibition The Electric Sleep. We will discuss the themes and inspiration behind their work, as well as, the history of assemblage. Inspired by their multi media installation, we will head to the classroom to create our own sculptures inspired by their techniques and style.
We will start the workshop off by touring our annual Member’s exhibition. Inspired by the beautiful works of artists in our community, we will bring out the printing press and experiment with different printing processes and use various materials to create our own unique printed artwork.
Join us for a tour of Comox, BC based artist Scott Bertram’s exhibition titled We can’t say it’s there, and yet we can’t say it isn’t. Inspired by his large-scale abstract paintings and the themes explored in the exhibition, we will explore his techniques and create our own abstract acrylic paintings on canvas.
