Art Class / After School Program

Welcome Back

After School Art Program, 2021/2022

Due to the School year start day and short week we are starting classes on the week of September 13, 2021. Please contact Michele with regard to PD days and possible workshops. We were very successful running Art Camps this summer in the tented garden and will continue to do so while the good weather lasts. We will do our best to follow the health ministry guidelines as we move indoors towards the fall when we move indoors.

Looking forward to seeing you all. The familiar faces and the new!

When possible we align our project to an eventful art exhibit visiting our AGO and or ROM.


 We Survived!

We had a great spring session staying safe and healthy while creating beautiful art. The Monday and Tuesday group worked on a Sculptural Mask Relief on canvas which encouraged thoughts on a subject that best suited their hopes and dreams. The popular theme spoke of the earth and its environment.

 

Tres Cool!!!!!!


A little thing we did while the doors were closed.

I asked the kids to send me drawings of what they thought Covid looked like under a microscope. A way to look at our adversary in a creative light. Bacteria and virus cells are quite surprisingly beautiful in colours and patterns.

The above is a what our young artist Flora thinks  the Corona virus looks like.   

And we miss the kids!
