March 23 ~Comic Book Stories!

Inspired by Patrick Cruz' art installation in the gallery athut / Words Bounce, we will draw gestures and objects based on imaginary languages. Using collage and drawing materials on comic book templates we will create fun and graphic characters to tell our own stories!

March 30 ~ 3-D Graffiti Dice

Saturday Studio kids will visit the gallery to gather inspiration from artist Patrick Cruz's installation Step Mother Tongue. Back in Art Lab, we will design colourful graphic dice! We will build with boxes and tape, then draw and embellish with markers. We can play games new and old, and make up imaginative games of our own in the gallery. Let's roll the dice!

Do you have a LEAP card? Your child may be eligible for a bursary. Two LEAP spots are available each week; one per family. Each family is welcome to use up to 2 LEAP spots per month.
