November 17 - 'Amut' - to be home

We will visit the exhibition The Poetics of Space in the gallery and draw inspiration from the late Annie Pootoogook’s pencil and ink drawing Listening to the Radio. Back in Art Lab we will use coloured pencils and fine point markers to create drawings of the everyday in our domestic spaces  - brushing our teeth, playing a board game, eating at the table - what else do you do?

November 24 - Creature Creator - Session 2

Saturday Studio kids will continue with what we started and design zany Creature Creator Boxes! Based on the popular 1920s Surrealist drawing games, we will design colourful images on 3 piece box installations where head, torso and feet can be rotated to create new, unexpected and zany creatures. You can attend one or both sessions. The work will be exhibited here in Art Lab as part of the Nanaimo Art Walk on December 1 and 2 from 10am - 4pm. Everyone welcome!  

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. 

Maximum program enrollment is 12 students. All phone reservations must be paid prior to 5 pm the Friday before Saturday Studio. Walk-in payments are accepted until 9:15 am Saturday if space allows.
