October 19 ~ Silhouette Sculpture Mobiles

Saturday Studio kids will visit the gallery to investigate Krista Belle Stewart's work The Gift and respond to the work by drawing and exaggerating the shapes and patterns on coloured neon paper. We will cut out our shapes and unite them together with string, transforming them into colourful hanging mobile sculptures to bring home.

October 26 ~ Plant Masquerade

Saturday Studio kids will use blown up photos of plants from our indigenous species planters as inspiration for our masks. We will draw and cut out the contours of the plant on coloured paper to shape the masks and embellish them with markers and shiny papers. Masquerading as our favourite plant we will tour the gallery and view the artwork with fresh eyes!

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.
