MINI artists

Join us on the last Monday of every month from 10 AM - 11 AM for a diverse exploration of artmaking 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.

For more information please contact Kelsie at 250-545-3173 or email her at education@vernonpublicartgallery.com

MARBLED PAPER

This month we will start our session off with a quick tour of a selection of works created by artists graduating from UBCO from the Bachelor of Fine Arts program. Inspired by the beautiful and thought-provoking artworks on display, we will get our hands messy by experimenting with shaving cream, liquid watercolour and paper to create our own unique multi-coloured artworks. This workshop is a great way to explore our senses while introducing colour mixing.

TISSUE PAPER SUNCATCHERS

The sun is out and shining bright! In this session of Mini Artists, we will create our own colourful suncatcher that we can hang in our favourite window. Inspired by the current exhibitions at the VPAG, we will head to the classroom and practice our fine motor skills by cutting tissue paper, yarn and other materials and sticking them onto contact paper to create our very own suncatcher.

AUGUST 30

10:00 - 11:00 AM

SELF-PORTRAIT CYANOTYPES

This session of Mini Artists is not one to miss! We will start our workshop off by viewing the many faces that make up the diverse school of Ecole Beairsto. Inspired by all the beautiful self-portraits, we will then explore the process of Cyanotypes to make our own self-portraits. Working with light-sensitive cyanotype paper, we will draw ourselves on plexiglass and expose it onto our paper to create beautiful blue self-portraits.
