Family Sunday | July 18 | Celebration of Art
Stay tuned for an extra special Family Sunday this summer in connection with our new virtual program Celebration of Art.
We are so pleased to welcome special guest, Owen. Owen is 9 years old and LOVES to create dresses, fabulous hats and other magical fashion pieces. For this month’s Family Sunday check out Owen’s delightful video workshop dropping on our YouTube channel at 2pm on July 18 and learn to create your own fabulous fashion piece to wear around your neighbourhood, campsite, wherever!
As well, we’re delivering FREE art kits to families’ doors on July 16 & 17! These will include colourful fabrics and other fun supplies to create with, inspired by Owen.
Please email: email@example.com by July 9 with a family’s address (yours or a loved one’s) and we’ll deliver on either Friday the 16 between 12-6pm, or Saturday the 17 between 10am-4pm. We hope to see you at your door!
Pease note – this month’s video workshop will also be screened at the AGGV for on site visitors.
Check out our growing collection of cool, inspiring, Family Sunday videos to check out featuring wonderful local artists on our YouTube channel!
Family Sunday happens every third Sunday of the month October – June, and is an afternoon of exploring hands-on art-making and ideas for all ages. This recurring program often features special guests like storytellers, artists, performers or musicians.
Also, enjoy this special offering from our June 2020 Family Sunday… A free coloring book created by the Tah’lum Indigenous Artists Collective Society! The colouring book (featuring artists Natassia Davies and Sarah Jim) supports Indigenous Language learning so be sure to download this wonderful tool ahead of time (see link below and check out the video featuring the Collective here). This program is part of our new digital arts initiative, FIELD TRIP: ART ACROSS CANADA.
The Tah’lum Indigenous Artists Collective Society was founded in March of 2019 to provide advocacy, mentorship, and further opportunity for Indigenous Artists. During the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, the collective wanted to find a way to reach out to folks of all ages currently in lockdown. The idea for the colouring book has grown far beyond its modest inception, and it has become a wonderful tool for supporting Indigenous Language learning. Three volumes of the books are planned, with a final expanded compilation volume planned for later this summer.
