Animation Creation / Creative Kids Summer Art Camp
Creative Kids is a 9 week summer program hosted by the gallery, made possible by funding from Young Canada Works and Canada Summer Jobs. Each week offers a fun and interactive program of independent and collaborative activities. Each participant will be provided with hands-on instruction and a wide range of fun projects which explore drawing, painting, printmaking, and sculpture with activities taking place both in the Gallery and in surrounding recreational areas.
All of our Summer Art Camps are full! Camps are currently limited to 10 children in order to promote social distancing while adhering to provincial health rules and regulations. Over the course of the summer, restrictions may ease. In the event that this does occur, we have a Wait List for Summer Art Camps. Please call us at (250)-493-2928 or pop into the Gallery to add your child to the list!
