Colour Play (ages 5-8)

What sound does red make? What does blue smell like? How does purple move? Students explore their world through colour in this multi-sensory, experimental studio workshop. Students use their 5 senses to explore colour in the Gallery spaces through search games and movement activities. Back in the studio, students create abstract paintings inspired by different types of music.

Art Stories (ages 8+)

Discover Alberta stories by exploring the work of Alberta artists from the past and present. In the gallery, students explore current exhibitions to discover connection between art and story and gather inspiration to develop their own Alberta story. In the studio, students create a small watercolour and block print based on their Alberta Story.
