Join the Club!
Recognizing the need for safe, in-person programming for children over the winter break, the McMichael is offering a studio-based program specifically tailored for small groups that will allow the kids to explore the exhibitions from 9 to 10 am daily when the gallery is closed to the public and then hone their artmaking skills in studio. Children will create new pieces every day in various mediums while discovering new techniques and painting styles.

The safety of students and staff is our top priority

In case of an unplanned closure due to COVID-19, the ArtVenture Winter Club will transition to a virtual format. Project-specific materials such as drawing and painting materials (illustration paper, canvas etc.), clay, and construction paper etc., will be provided through contactless pick-up. All project instructions will be delivered online.
In the event of a format change, however, participants will be asked to obtain their own basic art kit consisting of acrylic and watercolour paints, fine-tip permanent and regular markers of varying colours, coloured pencils, paint brushes (round 2, 6, 7, 8 and flat 2, 7), a plastic pallet water container, pencils, erasers, glue and a pair of scissors.
In the event of a format change, this program will be delivered via the video conferencing platform Zoom.
