Choose from 3 exciting weekly themes:

Ages 6 to 10 • Weeks of July 7, July 21 and August 4 (short week)
Create a Tale: Do you have a favourite character, hero or heroine? Have you ever explored ancient legends and mythical creatures? Discover the bizarre and often surprising stories behind the creatures depicted in fascinating works of art. Fabricate your own imaginative new character and wow your friends with its spellbinding story!

Ages 6 to 10 • Weeks of July 14 and August 11
Art Agents: Attention young detectives! Go on an art quest looking for treasures and relics within the Gallery and outside too. Find out how art can change over time and reveal the secrets held behind the layers of paint. Take out your magnifying glass and scope out the tiny clues that will solve the mystery, and start creating your own work of art with hidden messages.

Ages 11 to 14 • Weeks of July 28 and August 18
Art, Power and Spirit: Do you have unique ideas that are out of the ordinary? Art can move you and empower you in so many ways.
