Mini Artists @ Vernon Public Art Gallery

Calling all young creatives! Join us on the last Monday of every month for a diverse exploration of art-making materials and art processes through age-appropriate art activities. We invite parents and guardians to bring their little ones under the age of 5 to explore art making with non-toxic materials in this fun and social program that encourages creative self-expression while developing fine and gross motor skills and sensory awareness. This month’s art project is a collage inspired by the current exhibition by Jennifer Dyck. All are welcome to create, and make sure you dress for mess! Parents must accompany children for the duration of the session, admission is by donation.
