Contemporary Kids / Painted Photography

  • Illingworth Kerr Gallery 1407 14 Avenue Northwest Calgary, AB, T2N 4R3 Canada (map)

Our free monthly Contemporary Kids program invites families to learn about contemporary art through unique and engaging art activities developed for children ages 5-12.

We are very excited to be presenting this program in the gallery where children will learn about our current exhibition, Before Digital: Post-1970 Photography in Alberta. Our engaging kid-friendly tour will focus on the work of Diane Colwell, which combines painting with photography. Diane’s painted polaroids will be the inspiration for our art activity where children will create their own colourfully painted photographic images.

This program will be held at Illingworth Kerr Gallery, located in the Alberta University of the Arts (formerly ACAD).

Registration is required as spaces are limited. Only children need to be registered on Eventbrite, but we do require parents or guardians onsite for the duration of the program.
