Creative Sundays is an art day for children ages 5-7 accompanied by a parent or guardian. This drop-in program is from 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. every Sunday from January to the end of March. We will start with doing simple guided crafts together and see where this takes us! This is a freeform afternoon devoted to community and creativity. It is an opportunity for parents and children to make art, and for families to explore the exhibitions at the gallery. It is a time for creative expression, exploration and play.

Expressive Arts at the Penticton Art Gallery

Individual sessions for children in Grades 1-5 with Alexandra. As part of my Practicum Placement, I will be receiving supervision for individual appointments with children. Hour long individual sessions can be booked for your child based around the availability of the Gallery’s Tea Room. In these appointments, we will be playing with creative expression through the experience of art making. This experience could relate to visual art, creative play, acting, movement and/or sound. Creative self expression is linked to learning, and problem solving and may be useful in supporting your child in new ways of engaging. As well as exploring themes of belonging, community, energy and behavior, we can also lay foundations for later artistic practices – what skills are helpful for children who are artistically inclined? What skills can help children continue to be comfortable navigating the creative process in their own unique and self-directed way into adulthood? These are some things we can explore based on the interests of your child. Or we can just hang out and make art together.
