ArtStarts Explores

ArtStarts Explores is a hands-on drop-in workshop series for creative and adventurous families held from 11am to 12pm every Saturday (except the last Saturday of each month, when we present ArtStarts on Saturdays events). Explore creativity with your family through hands-on investigations and discover a wide variety of materials and artistic mediums. These process-based explorations invite families to experiment together through observing, touching, drawing, moving, assembling and listening to ignite their creative learning. Ages 12 and under. Free! Donations welcome.

Blending

Blending

Have you ever mixed two colours together? How about mixing 2 of the same colour?! These kind of challenges and more are happening in this week's blending workshop.

Squish, squeeze, smush. This week we're exploring the act of compression and mixing things together via pressure. Come and squash things with us!

Stretch

Stretch

After last week's exploration of being squished, this week we're stretching out and seeing what happens when we take up more space. What happens when we extend a line or bend our reflection? Find out more this week at ArtStarts Explores.

Scramble

Scramble

How can we take what we know and it familiar and scramble it together to make something new? It can feel hard to scramble up things that have been made before. Come to Explores to challenge yourself in scrambling together ideas, images, movement, and more!

Shine

Shine

With the beautiful sun out (hopefully) we will be exploring shiny art and how we can shine as artists, friends, and family! Join us to celebrate the sun and everything that makes us shine!
