Kelowna Art Gallery offers creative solutions for Spring Break

The Kelowna Art Gallery has a creative solution for parents wondering what to do with their children during the upcoming Spring Break. Art Break offers children the opportunity to create art, with sessions in painting, sculpture, drawing, mixed media, cartooning, and printmaking.

Each day of Art Break offers something new, with day camps held for children ages 5 to 8 from Monday to Friday during the week of March 12 to 16, and on Wednesday to Friday from March 21 to 23, 2012. Cost per day for camps for children ages 5 to 8 is $55 for members and $70 for non-members. If registrants sign up for any four classes, they will receive the fifth class for free.

New for 2012, the Kelowna Art Gallery has added a two-day cartooning workshop entitled Creative Cartoons. Suitable for children ages 8 to 12, Creative Cartoons will be instructed by local artist, Niina Teto, on Monday, March 19 an Tuesday, March 20, 2012. Students will learn how to create original and appealing cartoon characters, learn the basics of putting together a comic storyboard, and will be guided to create a poster or comic book cover with their character as the centre piece. Cost for the two-day camp is $110 for members and $125 for non-members.

“The Kelowna Art Gallery is a great place for children and their friends to do something together during Spring Break,” says Renée Burgess, Head of Public Programming at the Kelowna Art Gallery. “Encouraging children’s creativity and showing them how rewarding actively participating in the visual arts can be is our focus.” In addition to creative exploration for participants, Art Break can offer parents peace of mind that their children will be spending Spring Break with their peers in a nurturing and safe environment. To register, contact the Gallery at 250.762.2226.

The Kelowna Art Gallery is located at 1315 Water Street in the heart of the Cultural District in downtown Kelowna. For hours of operation, or more information about other programs available, and current exhibitions on view, visit the Kelowna Art Gallery online at www.kelownaartgallery.com.
