What sets the Esplanade classes apart from other art classes?
Art classes draw from the current exhibitions in the Art Gallery. Two dimensional and three dimensional art projects are designed to give children the opportunity to explore a wide variety of ideas in a diversity of media. Projects and art activities challenge children while instructors offer plenty of encouragement to provide for a safe environment that promotes exploration, creativity and expression.
Instructor: Candice Arnold

For the second season, we are offering PD Day programming in partnership with the Hive Artists’ Hub Society. Students ages 5-11 will spend their day experimenting with various art materials and techniques while developing and refining their skills as young artists. They will also have the opportunity to think critically and stimulate their senses as they create, interpret, and express themselves visually. This fun filled day will begin with an engaging morning in the welcoming Discovery Centre. An afternoon field trip to the Hive will allow students to learn from professional practicing artists. Both drop-off and pick-up will take place at the Esplanade’s Discovery Centre. Each Board-specific PD Day will have different content so students may enjoy coming back more than once!
