Exploring Visual Arts I | Ages 6-8

| Schurman Family Studio
In this eight-week class for beginners, students explore the elements of art through a series of diverse drawing, painting, and sculpting activities. Students will create artworks that focus specifically on each of the elements of art: line, shape, value, colour, form and texture. Through fun exercises and lessons, students will learn skills that develop their visual literacy and technical ability. At the end of the course, students will create an artwork in the medium of their choosing using the skills they have learned throughout the class to inform their final work. Activities will be supplemented by gallery visits.

What are Relaxed Performances?


Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
