Creative Kids is a 8-week summer program hosted by the gallery, made capable by funding from Young Canada Works.
Each week offers a fun and interactive program of independent and collaborative activities which seeks to develop and strengthen creative skills, build self-esteem, build a sense of self-importance and individuality, encourage self-expression and stimulate imagination in children through the arts. Each participant will be provided with hands-on instruction and a wide range of fun projects which explore the possibilities of drawing, painting, printmaking, and sculpture with activities taking place both in the gallery and in surrounding recreational areas.
