The ARC Discovery Room is the perfect place for visitors of all ages to enjoy art activities and explore the ideas featured in Glenbow exhibitions.
The ARC Discovery Room is open to the public daily during museum hours, but may be closed for private groups and school bookings. Please ask at the admission desk or call ahead to inquire about closures.
The activities listed below will be available from September 7, 2013 to January 12, 2014.
Pop Art Patterns
Brighten your day - and your walls. Using neon-coloured card stock, make simple but snappy pictures inspired by the work of 80s graffiti art icons such as Keith Haring and Frank Stella.
We'll provide a "tag" template; you add the juice in the form of a veritable rainbow of coloured markers.
In a twist on the Transformations exhibition, make your own 3-D mini-landscape using pliable wire and plastic clay. Whether you opt for a colourful, Group of Seven-style tableau or a starker scene, in the style of Otto Dix, the end result will be all your own.
Explorations in Art
There's a lot to discover in the Made in Calgary: The 1980s exhibition, and our exploration guide offers amazing facts about Calgary and artists working in the city during the 1980s. Pick up an activity sheet in the Discovery Room and, once it's completed, turn it in to compete for a prize. A great activity for the whole family.
