November 18 - Leaf Rubbing, Pastels and Paint Murals!

What better way to celebrate the beautiful colours of fall with leaf rubbings, paint and pastels. We will tape large sheets of butcher paper on the floor, position the leaves on the paper and create rubbings of the leaves using colourful pastels. We will then paint over with watery paints for a wax resist effect and see the beautifully coloured textures and patterns that emerge!

November 25 - Divers, Abalone and Sea Urchins!

The famous haenyeo female sea divers of Jejudo in Jin-me Yoon's work in the gallery gather abalone and urchins for food from the ocean floor. We will learn more about this ancient tradition and these inspiring strong women who have been diving for seafood for most of their life to make their living. We will tell these stories with paint on paper and re-create the iridescent colours and patterns of abalone and sea urchins. 

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 10:15 am Saturday if space allows.
