Upcoming Activities

February 22 - May 29, 2016

Long Landscapes

Be inspired by the incredible historical landscape paintings in Embracing Canada: Landscapes from Krieghoff to the Group of Seven and create your own panoramic landscape using a variety of mediums. Try techniques used by the master artists featured in the exhibition, or come up with new ones of your own!.

Animal Sculptures

Check out the amazing animal-inspired fashions and artifacts in Kaleidoscopic Animalia and create a mini creature out of plasticine. You may also be inspired by the interesting forms presented in One New Work and be tempted to sculpt something more abstract. Let your imagination be your guide!

Explorations in Art

Put on your exploration cap and follow the clues in the latest versions of our art scavenger hunt. We have many new galleries to explore, so take your pick! Return your completed sheet to the Discovery Room for a prize. Fun for the whole family!
