Studio Programs offer opportunities for all ages to learn how art connects with our daily lives. Focusing on the KAG’s current exhibitions, programs include art camps, interactive tours, activities and workshops that encourage self-expression and experimentation through the process of learning art techniques, basic design concepts and how to use a variety of media. If you haven’t already, we encourage you to follow us on Facebook and sign up for our monthly e-Newsletter to ensure you are aware of programs as they are scheduled. Click here for details.
Children under 3 with their parents & caregivers, FREE
Explore art with your children. Have fun and socialize with other parents and guardians while your toddlers experiment with all-natural art materials. In August, we will focus on drawing and make dots, lines, circles and squiggles with crayons. In September, we will bring out the paints and experiment with finger painting and colour mixing. In October, we will get ready for Hallowe’en by painting masks and in November we will sculpt, roll and squish with homemade play dough. All materials are made with natural ingredients and are safe for children who want to put everything in their mouths. Dress for mess and fun. No registration required.
