Up up and away!  Get inspired by the works of Chagall and create your own magnificent dreamscape.  Children can be inspired by two spectacular and colourful exhibitions at the WAG featuring the works of the famous artist Marc Chagall.  Children will use similar techniques as Chagall to create their own artwork inspired by Chagall.  Chagall’s work is often based on surrealism and so the children will explore this concept through fun and interactive games and art activities.  The field trip is to the Children’s Museum and to the WAG shop/workshop space at the Forks.  They will be bussed there and back on a private charter bus.  Every camp gets free pizza on Friday and a mini-exhibition of their artwork will be displayed to parents on Friday afternoon.  All camps go into WAG galleries at least twice during the week.
