March Break Camps at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery

Category: arts 61

Artistica March Break Camps offer programs for kids 5-11 who like adventures in art!

The Beaverbrook Art Gallery has announced the return of the Artistica March Break Art Camp running this year from March 7-11 with five days of exciting and engaging art activities, inspired by acquisitions in the gallery’s collection. Create with the artist Bayonne Rongen on Monday and Tuesday for collage and printmaking activities, and join artist and art educator Emilie Grace Lavoie Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday for a collection of hands-on activities which include sculpture and painting.

Camps run from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Pick up by 5 p.m. at the latest as the gallery closes at that time. The cost is $180 for the week for members and $200 for the week for non-members. Campers need a lunch and two nut-free snacks. Dress for mess and fun! Bring indoor shoes as well as plenty of warm layers for outside play. 

The week’s schedule:

March 7 – Printmaking: Printmaking inspired by the tales found within the works of Dan Steeves, Norval Morriseau and newest Inuit prints in our collection.

March 8 – Handmade Paper Collage: Create your own story through paper influenced by Anna Torma’s latest work by designing your own collage using unique handmade paper and found materials.

March 9 – Sculpture: Build your own sculpture using clay and recycled materials taking inspiration from artists Emilie Grace Lavoie, and Gerald Beaulieu.

March 10 – Painting: Paint like folk artists and Acadian artists such as Maud Lewis, Leo B LeBlanc and Nancy Morin.

March 11 – Relief 3D Paint & Finalizing: Inspired by the work of Joe Fafard, create your own clay relief three dimensional painting, and finalize the finishing touches of any other projects from the week.
