This course will take you back in time and around the world to hunt for the treasures of ancient and modern civilizations. Our journey begins thousands of years ago, exploring the rich history of iconic art, craft, architecture, and design—learning about the intricate patterns, imagery and motifs inspired by nature and mythology that were used to adorn everyday objects and places—pots, coins, costume, homes and temples. Our search will take us to modern times, where we will meet some famous artists and discover their fascinating art work.

Using various mediums and techniques you will create works inspired by treasures from the ancient and modern worlds of art!

Wild, Wild North: Arctic Tundra

For kids 4–6 years
Class Time: 1:00pm–3:30pm

With Shoora Majedian

Explore the Wild, Wild North of Canada, travelling across the great plains, forests, mountains and wetlands, from sea to shining sea. Visit the kingdom of the polar bear and marvel at the colours of the polar night. Watch and listen to the moose, geese, and loons and get inspired by the shapes, colours and sounds of nature.

Together we will explore the “Wild, Wild North” through sound recordings, short videos, stories, and images by Canadian artists. We will also share our own stories, tales and personal memories of the wilderness through art.

You will draw, paint, build, and sculpt using various techniques and materials including recycled objects, and natural matter such as flowers, rocks, twigs, leaves and grasses that you’ll collect outside.

My Fantastic Invention

For kids 7–12 years
Class Time: 1:00pm–3:30pm

With Chiara Arevalo

Invent an object that you believe would be very useful to yourself or others. Put on your thinking cap and let your imagination run wild—your invention will do and look like anything you can imagine! You will be encouraged to think outside of the box and take any direction you want using drawing, painting and various 2D and 3D mixed media (including recycled materials). By the end of the week you will be able to show what your invention looks like, how it works, and what it is used for.
