May 6-Jun 24, 2023
Join us on Churchill Square for art explorations and fun! Each week, we explore new art materials and techniques! It’s FREE! All are welcome and all materials are included.
May 6 | Artist Trading Cards
Inspired by the Oilers’ playoff run, work in watercolour and drawing media to illustrate a series of artist trading cards inspired by your favorite sports or summer activities. Stay in the square and watch the game at 5 pm!
May 13 | My Place
Inspired by a personal memory of place, create a relief sculpture that pops!
May 20 | Assert & Obliterate
Using a range of drawing materials, create an expressive drawing where mistakes and successes are equally celebrated!
May 27 | Painted Portraits
Before the invention of the camera, patrons would commission artists to capture their likenesses. Play with colour mixing and texture to create an original selfie or portrait of a friend.
Jun 3 | Watercolour Experiments
Learn the basics of this water-based medium, experiment with techniques, and then work like scores of artists to capture a corner of Churchill Square en plein air!
Jun 17 | Art Games
Games are for artists too! Learn some delightful new ways to play and create including an exquisite corpse, automatic drawings, and a ‘Cubomania’ collage!
Jun 24 | Fleeting Moments
In our last session in the square, we’ll create a reductive print that captures the fleeting moments of summer.
