April 14, 2021 | Everyday Curiosities
Jude Griebel: Barn Skull is presently in Manning Hall and gives us an up-close look into how rural objects are humanized in our imaginations. Seek out some treasures in your house and meet back to bring those objects to life.
April 21, 2021 | Mother Earth
Thank you to Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson, we celebrate Earth Day every year! This year’s theme is “Restore Our Earth”. Have recyclable materials and wire handy to say THANK YOU Mother Earth!
April 28, 2021 | Garden Variety
Artists will tell you that creativity is found in the most unlikely places. This week, we put this idea to the test by looking in our fridges for inspiration about gardens! Then, we will explore types of brush strokes after looking at artist Emmanuel Osahor’s painting of his father’s garden in The Scene.
May 5, 2021 | Colour to the MAX!
Anna Hawkins: Blue Light Blue warns us of the dangers of too much screen time and the impact of blue light on our bodies. Today, we fight back with an analog art process (stamping) and a whole spectrum of colours!
May 12, 2021 | Silly Stencils
Our current exhibition Bacchanale: Music in Picasso’s Linocut Prints is our inspiration this week. Learn to cut and print your own stencils. Put it all together to create a series of charming and playful prints. The joy of this activity is that we can be as silly as we like.
May 19, 2021 | BBQ anyone?
Victoria Day is when we all start thinking about warmer weather and cooking outside. Grab your plasticine or playdough and make some mouthwatering BBQ staples.
May 26, 2021 | Yarnique
Clear glue and yarn… have I got your attention? Consider the possibilities of these materials as we walk & talk our way through our current exhibition Black Every Day and then, create a yarn-ique artwork of your own.
