PD Day Art Camp

Springtime Gathering in Art Lab (Yuqwiqwulus Squpastul Suniw Art Lab)

Friday, May 11, 9 am - 2 pm
Ages 5–12
Supplies included
$30 per child | $55 for two siblings per day
Bring lunch, snack, and water

Together we'll explore the exhibition Fulhame's Map to look closely at the artworks. Back at Art Lab, we'll hear a Snuneymuxw story about a young woman who goes stilukw (strawberry) picking and learn about the annual community celebration this story inspired. Based on our observations in the exhibition, we'll create our own self-portraits, tracing silhouettes on paper. We'll embellish these with a stilukw photo montage, based on photos from Nanaimo Art Gallery's Indigenous species planters.

Young artists will explore a variety of approaches to art making and asking the question "How can we speak differently?" Inspired by our summer exhibition THE ORCHIDS / HAD THE LOOK OF FLOWERS THAT ARE LOOKED AT, we will design, draw, photograph, paint, collage and build using traditional and contemporary approaches to art making. Taught by regional artists, Summer Art Camps are a fantastic way to inspire learners to explore and experiment!
