City of Charlottetown presents
Family-fun activities across the Centre this holiday season
Come gather ‘round at the Centre this holiday season for some family fun and creative cheer, courtesy of the City of Charlottetown. Capital New Year will offer free, socially-distanced events across Confederation Centre of the Arts on December 30 and 31.
Family Art Activities
Patrons can sign up for one of four Family Art Activities, December 30 and 31 at the Confederation Centre Art Gallery (CCAG). Participants will be provided with all of the materials they need to create their own winter landscape collage inspired by their favourite seasonal activities. Participants will be treated to hot chocolate and cookies at the conclusion of the activity. Times run from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. or 2-3:30 p.m. and pre-registration is required.
The CCAG will host Scavenger Hunts from December 28-31 where patrons will use holiday clues to search for artworks and decorations in the Gallery and around the outdoor concourse. Visitors can also pick up a complimentary ‘Sketch Kit’ from the CCAG and study the artworks on site, hone sketching skills, and take the kit home for personal projects. Kits are available at the Gallery reception desk while supplies last.
The Centre is also offering New Year’s Dance Parties on December 30 and 31, as led by dance umbrella instructors. Families will learn fundamental dance steps in a relaxed, fun and safe environment, which will then be incorporated into a festive holiday dance. Participants will be treated to hot chocolate and cookies at the conclusion of each dance party. This activity is free for families and requires pre-registration.
Appreciation is extended to the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Province of Prince Edward Island, the City of Charlottetown.
