What Sets The Esplanade Classes Apart From Other Art Classes?
Art classes draw from the current exhibitions in the Art Gallery. Two dimensional and three dimensional art projects are designed to give children the opportunity to explore a wide variety of ideas in a diversity of media. Projects and art activities challenge children while instructors offer plenty of encouragement to provide for a safe environment that promotes exploration, creativity and expression.


Instructor: Candice Arnold
Students six to eight and nine to twelve years old will enjoy 8 weeks of fun while developing and refining their art skills. They will have the opportunity to learn the basics in a variety of mediums, building confidence and understanding as their knowledge in fine arts grows.

Calling all budding artists! The Esplanade Arts and Heritage Centre along with the Hive Artists’ Hub will be offering PD Day art programming for ages 5-11 beginning in Fall of 2016. Students will spend their day experimenting with various art materials and techniques while developing and refining their skills as young artists. All participants are sure to go home with a masterpiece! Students will have the opportunity to think critically and stimulate their senses as they create, interpret, and express themselves visually. This fun filled day will begin with an engaging morning in the Discovery Centre, the Esplanade’s warm and welcoming art-making space. An afternoon field trip to the Hive Artists’ Hub will provide students with the opportunity to learn from professional practicing artists. Both drop-off and pick-up will take place at Esplanade’s Discovery Centre. Each Board-specific PD Day will have different content so students will enjoy coming back more than once!
