FAMILY SUNDAYS ARE BACK!
Gather up the gang and head to the Gallery the last Sunday of the month from 1:30-2:30 p.m. for a load of fun-filled art activities. They’re FREE, they’re fun and they’re bilingual (English and French).
January 31 to April 25
All ages are welcome and pre-registration is required.
For January’s Family Sunday, we’ll show you how to make your drawings move by creating a fun and simple flipbook. These books are created by stacking drawings and flipping through them quickly, making it look like your drawings are moving. The inspiration for this activity comes from Sarah Anne Johnson’s artwork, Into the Woods, from our new exhibition The Drive. Similar to the flipbooks we will be making, the artist combined many different photographs together into one picture. She then turned them into a lenticular print, which creates the effect of a moving picture when you walk in front of it. The final artwork “captures the lived-experience of walking through a dark, dense forest—the subtle sway of the branches, the flicker of light through the shifting canopy.” By making your very own flipbook you can create the same kind of movement with your 2D pictures, whether you are drawing large forests or simple lines and shapes.
