MINI artists

Join us on the last Monday of every month for a diverse exploration of art-making materials and art processes through age-appropriate art activities. We invite parents and guardians to bring their little ones under the age of 5 to explore art making with non-toxic materials in this fun and social program that encourages creative self-expression while developing fine and gross motor skills and sensory awareness. All are welcome to create, and make sure you dress for mess! Parents must accompany children for the duration of the session, admission is by donation. Due to Covid-19, Pre-registration is required to ensure social distancing and sanitation protocols are followed.


Pre-register by emailing

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.
