Let’s time-warp our way through Art History with artists Rae, Alexa and Stephanie for a week of time-travelling ART Exploration!

The old masters will meet their match when our young makers mix it up and learn some classic artmaking techniques! Try your hand at Mesopotamian Bas-Relief Prints. Byzantium Mosaics. Egg Tempera Animal Portraits. A Van Gogh Pop-Up. A Mixed Media canvas inspired by the Group of 7’s Lawren Harris!

Get ready for a multi-media-mash-up week of creativity, fresh air play & friendship!

This year we have expanded our March Break Art Camp and will be working in both our cheery Art Classroom and the sunny Sparrow’s Nest Maker Space.

Led by ECFTA Art Educators Rae Abel, Alexa Collette and Stephanie Lines-Toohill, the week will be a balance of guided art instruction in our art classroom and open-flow creativity in our maker space!

To ensure that your child is ready for a full day of art making and fun:

  • A healthy mid-morning snack and lunch
  • Refillable water bottle
  • Dress for the weather and for making art!

For more information or registration inquiries please contact us or email Judy at programming@ecfta.ca
