CREATIVE KIDS SUMMER ART ADVENTURES
Creative Kids is a 9 week summer program hosted by the gallery, made possible by funding from Young Canada Works and Canada Summer Jobs. Each week offers a fun and interactive program of independent and collaborative activities which seeks to develop and strengthen creative skills, build self-esteem, encourage self-expression and stimulate imagination in children through the arts. Each participant will be provided with hands-on instruction and a wide range of fun projects which explore the possibilities of drawing, painting, printmaking, and sculpture with activities taking place both in the Gallery and in surrounding recreational areas.
