Contemporary Kids / Painted Photography

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.

Contemporary Kids / Colour Field Painting

  • cSpace - RGO Treehouse, 4th Floor (map)

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

The afternoon will begin with a fun image-filled exploration of colour field painting and how the techniques of this movement continue to inspire the practices of contemporary artists. Children will be invited to experiment with applying colourful pigments to paper through different staining and transfer techniques to create their own artworks. 

We are excited to be holding this series at cSPACE in their RGO Treehouse on the 4th floor. There is ample parking surrounding the building.

Registration is required. To RSVP please click here.
