Discover how art has been used as a vehicle for expression through the ages. In this class your budding artist will take a voyage to the past to discover and be inspired by key movements in art history, from Renaissance to Realism, and everything in between. Students will create their own unique pieces based off of these periods using a variety of tools and materials such as printmaking, watercolour, acrylic paint, ink, and pastels. They will use techniques that include shape, texture, colour and line to explore their creativity while having fun and learning about art, culture, and heritage. The class includes trips to the Centre’s onsite galleries to learn through interacting with the artwork in the current exhibitions. The session will end with an art show where students are invited to share their creativity and pieces with their families. All materials provided.
