Family Saturdays take place on the last Saturday of each month with an art project suitable for little kids and big kids alike. Parents/guardians are encouraged to participate and create their own piece of art as well. The workshop starts promptly at 1 p.m each month and families are welcome to stay the entire session from 1 p.m to 3:30 p.m or leave earlier. All materials for the workshops are supplied and the workshop will be running at 50% capacity in order to maintain proper social distancing and sanitation protocols. Please pre-register online to guarantee a spot.
• $5/members • $9/non-members.
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.
upcoming family saturdays
1:00 - 3:30 PM
INSPIRED BY GILLIAN WILLANS
Gillian Willans' work examines domestic spaces through painting. Her works are realistic depictions of unique interior and exterior spaces in homes. Inspired by her paintings, we will have fun creating our own dioramas! Using boxes as a starting point we will use a variety of different materials to build our furniture, create wallpaper, and build items to fill our imaginary or realistic rooms. Put on your thinking cap and come with your wildest ideas!
INSPIRED BY MARSHA KENNEDY
This month we will start our session off with a quick tour of Embodied Ecologies, a retrospective exhibition of artworks by artist Marsha Kennedy. Inspired by the beautiful artworks on display and the environmental themes present in her work, we will get our hands messy by experimenting with mixed media materials to create artworks on canvas board.
EXPLORING MUSIC THROUGH ART
INSPIRED BY THE SOUNDS SUSPICIOUS EXHIBITION
Sounds Suspicious is a music collective based out of the Central Okanagan. We will start our workshop off with a tour of their exhibition and talk about and listen to some of the music present in the exhibition. We will then experiment with different art materials while listening to the varying music created by the artists to create unique artworks that activate our senses!
eXPLORING COLOUR COLLAGES
INSPIRED BY THE EXPOSED! MEMBERS EXHIBITION
This session will start with a tour of select artworks in our annual Member’s Show. Inspired by the artworks on display, we will experiment with various coloured materials and processes to create our own colour collage!
INSPIRED BY THE UBCO'S PERMANENT COLLECTION
This month we will start our session off by engaging with artworks in our exhibition derived from UBCO’s permanent collection. Inspired by the variety of works in the exhibition, specifically the prints, we will head to the classroom and learn about the monoprinting process and make our own relief prints using materials such as styrofoam, brayers, and printmaking ink.
