Family Saturdays – Styrofoam Monoprints
Family Saturdays take place on the last Saturday of each month with an art project suitable for little kids and big kids alike. Parents/guardians are encouraged to participate and create their own piece of art as well. The workshop starts promptly at 1 p.m each month and families are welcome to stay the entire session from 1 p.m to 3:30 p.m or leave earlier. All materials for the workshops are supplied and the workshop will be running at 50% capacity in order to maintain proper social distancing and sanitation protocols. Please pre-register online to guarantee a spot. https://app.etapestry.com/onlineforms/VernonPublicArtGallerySoci/familysaturday.html
INSPIRED BY THE UBCO’S PERMANENT COLLECTION
This month we will start our session off by engaging with artworks in our exhibition derived from UBCO’s permanent collection. Inspired by the variety of works in the exhibition, specifically the prints, we will head to the classroom and learn about the monoprinting process and make our own relief prints using materials such as styrofoam, brayers, and printmaking ink.
• $5/members • $9/non-members.
Kelsie, our Learning and Community Engagement Curator will start the workshop off by touring the current exhibition that is on display. She will then walk you through a hands-on art activity inspired by the artwork.
