PD Days (Ages 5-11): Full days from 9:00am–4:00pm (drop off starting at 8:30am, pick-up until 4:30pm)

Instructor: Jasmine Keillor and an artist from The Hive Artists’ Hub (TBD)

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 for the 2017/18 school year. 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!
