THIS WEEK’S SUMMER ART CLASS:
Animal Art Kingdom – 4-9 years old from 9:30am – 12:00pm
The AGA is partnering with Jade Wellness for an optional full day program this week.
Let’s go boldly into the world of art and animals. The mediums that you’ll use this week are all right there in the natural world! We’ll learn art techniques using wax, clay and paper. We’ll do everything from painting, printmaking, paper-making & sculpture building of your favourite animals; either your pet or an animal you would love to get to know better. The choice is yours! Register for this class
Sculpture – 10-15 years old from 1:30pm – 4pm
Come out to the AGA for a mixed media sculpture adventure! Experiment with a variety of materials including plaster, wire, found objects and wood, to make unique 3-D objects. In the Gallery, students will discover and discuss a range of sculpture from folk art to contemporary works of art. We’ll also explore the sculptures in the park for inspiration.
