Winter Camps 2018/2019

Winter blues got you down? Join us this holiday season to celebrate the best parts of winter! From arctic animals to steaming cups of hot chocolate, this week of camp will explore all your winter favourites using a wide variety of techniques and materials. We offer programs for children aged JK/SK to Grade 8, for either the morning session (9:30-12:00), afternoon session (1:00-3:30) or both!

December 27 
Morning (9:30am - 12:00pm) : Snowball Throwing Self-Portrait
Using paint, drawing tools and collage, students will learn to draw a self portrait. We'll be sure to add a warm coat and mittens, because this character is going to be throwing snowballs - with an arm that actually moves!

Afternoon (1:00pm-3:30pm) : Beluga Printmaking
On a painted background, students will use traditional printmaking techniques to stamp a huge, white beluga whale onto the swirling arctic sea.

A model magic snowman, cotton snow, and a 3D tree come together in this project to create a magical, snowy scene in a shadow box!

Immortalize your favourite toy by painting it! Students in grade 1-6 will bring in their favourite toy, JK/SK students will be painting a teddy bear together.
