Watercolour Landscape Silhouettes!
Let’s explore Canada’s amazing scenic landscapes coast to coast - Artist’s will learn all about composition, foreground, middle groud, background and horizon lines using a variety of paint resist techniques. Come create a colourful Canadian landscape painting!
Make your own Pom Pom Creatures!
Learn how to create your own colourful, fluffy pom-poms! We will be adding on google eyes, feet, wings, antenna and tails to give our pom-poms their own unique personality!
Artfest Kids will bring out the creative nature in every child. At Artfest, introducing children to the arts is one of our mandates and we have seen that creative kids become our innovative future leaders. As your family strolls through the Distillery District, you will notice many interesting things that the artists have created. Take advantage of opportunities to talk to artists and artisans from far and wide and learn about the methods they use for creating their art. There are amazing things to discover! We hope you’ll come and experience Artfest Kids fun!
