Art in Isolation: How We Connect Through Art
Share
Ages:
All
Admission:
$25
Over the past 18 months, many of us have had to adapt to working in isolation and discover new ways of staying connected with our communities. Throughout the summer, we invite artists of all ages to participate in the creation of a collaborative mural and share their stories with us, answering the question: “How has art given you strength this past year?”

Participants will receive a complete materials kit with everything they need, including: an 11 x 14 canvas panel, acrylic paint, paint brushes, a pencil, and an instructional booklet. Your canvas will come with a line running through it—this is what will connect your painting to those made by other participants when they are brought together on our Open Gallery as a collaborative mural.

Completed artworks must be returned to the the Gallery by August 17 for inclusion in the exhibition. Exhibition dates: August 23 to September 18, 2021.

Ages:
5 to 12
Admission :
$240 // $216 for members (per week)
Our programs provide participants with the opportunity to create art in a safe, encouraging, student-led space with a focus on process-based learning.

This summer, we have developed three thematic programs for children aged 5 to 12 as well as a remote engagement project for all ages, all designed to engage with ideas, materials, and techniques from our summer exhibition, Holding a Line in Your Hand. Through experimentation in our studios, adventures to the BIG Little Science Centre, and daily explorations of the Gallery, participants will develop their confidence and skills as young artists.

Camp programming runs 9:00 to 3:00 pm daily.
Extended care is available from 8:30 to 9:00 and 3:00 to 3:30, and is included in the registration cost.

Please note:
In response to COVID-19, we have adapted our summer art camp program to facilitate smaller groups and support a healthy, productive learning environment with an elimination of shared art supplies and increased cleaning procedures.

Each participant will have their own art station and will receive their own materials kit with everything they need. In order to maintain the recommended safe distance of two meters at all times, this year’s camp can only accommodate eight participants each week. A floorplan of our studios is available to download here. All participants are required to wear a mask while indoors. We are happy to provide a mask for anyone who needs one.
