We had a blast at our Artstarts on Saturdays performance last month presented by Continental Breakfast. Continental Circus for Kids had us expanding our understanding of identity and representation. If you didn't catch the performance, tune in to this month's ArtStarts on Saturdays performance with Andy the Musical Scientist.
We're also grateful for our guest Explores artist, Jessica Kang, for leading us through our surprise-themed workshop using watercolours. You can watch the episode on our Facebook page.
Check out all the fun and free family-friendly events at ArtStarts in November.
ArtStarts on Saturdays is our digital programming that premieres on the last Saturday of every month. Now families from across the province can enjoy our programming.
This month your family can enjoy Andy the Musical Scientist.
The performance will stream on our Facebook page from October 29 - November 25. Andy, formerly of Delhi to Dublin, combines music and science to inspire children to think outside the box. Using homemade inventions from reusable household items. Audiences will experience looping, beatboxing, theremin and more. Andy the Musical Scientist demonstrates creativity through technology, music, and science in unexpected ways to captivate young audiences and encourage them to follow their dreams.
This month we are exploring Equivalents!
Our guest facilitator this month is Laurie Landry.
We're gearing up for the launch of our touring exhibition 'PIP'. Our Gallery team has been hard at work dreaming, scheming, and conceiving of a very special touring exhibition exploring identity, self-acceptance, and diversity. If you are an educator, caregiver, or adult with young learners in your orbit, then you will appreciate the themes of social and emotional learning embedded into the messaging of this interactive experience.
‘PIP’ is an interactive exhibition. ‘PIP’ has a closet and even expresses emotions. For non-visual access, ‘PIP’ even speaks.
The exhibition's first stop is Cove Cliff Elementary. You can visit the school after school hours from November 14 - December 5 to experience 'PIP' yourself!
For those looking for more ways to engage with the exhibition, our very own Program Coordinator, Peisen Ding, curated 7 episodes that complement the theme. Check out the episodes and Peisen’s exploration of each on our blog.
