What makes a good museum? Well, interesting displays, of course. But what makes a great museum?! Interesting displays AND a place dedicated to helping you explore your own creativity after you’ve been inspired by the museum! At Glenbow Museum visitors of all ages can enjoy exhibitions, programs, and activities that educate as well as entertain. Whether you’re young or young at heart, come in to see the museum and explore and create in the Discovery Room!
The Discovery Room is the perfect place for visitors of all ages to enjoy art activities and explore the ideas featured in Glenbow exhibitions. The Christmas holidays are a perfect time to visit. Are relatives visiting? Everyone will find something at Glenbow! Are kids getting restless? Take the chance to spend a day together and get out of the house, discovering and creating together.
From October 19, 2109, to January 12, 2020, stop by the Discovery Room for cool printmaking and hands-on creative projects.
If you’re inspired by the incredible artwork in the feature exhibition, Sybil Andrews: Art and Life, you can try Foam Printmaking. Create your own relief print using a foam base and pencil, then use a roller and print ink to transfer your image.
The feature exhibition, ExtraOrdinary Objects, will prompt you to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary by using ready-made objects as a base and adding a variety of materials to create a new version of your object. Evaluate your Ready-Made Artwork using the four Cs: Creativity, Composition, Communication and Craftsmanship.
When you’re finished that, follow the clues in the latest version of the art scavenger hunt, for Explorations in Art. There are lots of new galleries, so go discover! Return your completed sheet to the Discovery Room for a prize.
Make the most of your family time this holiday season! The Glenbow Museum Discovery Room makes it easy for you to create together.
