Culture Vulture Saturdays
FREE ACTIVITES* | DROP-IN BASIS | GALLERY OPEN
January 12, 2013 – Into a New Photo Realm – After choosing an image of your choice from our selection of magazines you will transform it into a whole new life! You will become inspired to represent it in a new media, either with painting, drawing or even sculpture!
February 9, 2013 – Print Making – Our print making sessions have become an annual event for many Lethbridgians! All materials are provided and it’s easy to do, not to mention a lot of fun.
March 16, 2013 – Zentangle – Zentangle is a fun and relaxing activity for all age levels. It is great way to get creative using only a pencil and a piece of paper. You have the freedom of your imagination to create different lines and shapes that are then filled in with repetitive patterns of your choice to create a whole new beautiful image.
April 13, 2013 – Button Making for Trap/door – It’s our usual button making sesh! 1 button for $1 or 5 buttons for $3.
May 25, 2013 – A Rough Sketch – Using non-traditional drawing tools you will have the chance to express a reflection of yourself in a way you have never seen. Instead of looking into a mirror and seeing your reflection it is time to draw that reflection using chalk on sandpaper!
June 8, 2013 – It’s all in the Frame – Using a comic page template you will have the chance to use a variety of materials to create your own sequence of events. It’s time to create your own characters and storyline!
