Drop in to enjoy, learn about, and make art with friends and family! 

Make a collage, experiment with clay, and create a miniature mural inspired by the Gallery’s many fall exhibitions that run until December 11. The artworks encourage visitors to listen to stories of others from around the world and to learn about different perspectives.

Upon arrival, participants will be invited to make an Art Experimenter booklet that will help to navigate the Gallery and discover the artworks. The booklet will include a search-and-find activity, as well as other challenges to complete. For each challenge finished, participants will receive an art monster stamp.

When people step into the Gallery, they will be greeted by videopoems, paintings, photographs, films, installations, and window murals. Among the many artworks, people will see an elaborate garment featuring a gathered denim skirt adorned with beads and sleeves made of different Nigerian fabric pieces by Olúwáṣọlá Kẹ́hìndé Olówó-Aké; vibrant mythical, fantastical, and afro-futuristic representational portraits by Odera Igbokwe; and a colourful window mural by Sandeep Johal that evokes feelings of joy, wonder, strength, courage, and play.

Inspired by Olówó-Aké’s garment, participants will experiment with clay to create patterns and textures using fabrics, stamps, and found objects that reflect their own cultures. The art studio will host a collage activity using paper and water-based crayons to explore the relationship between oneself and the world. There will also be an opportunity to make a miniature window mural that plays off Sandeep Johal’s using line, shapes, patterns, and colours in one of the artmaking stations.

Look for the Gallery’s dedicated sensory-friendly space to get creative with different materials. Resources like noise-cancelling headphones and squishy seats, as well as staff, will be around to facilitate comfortable and relaxed exploration.
