In our final Discovery Corner of 2013, we’ll learn about Canada’s rich artistic past! We'll have special artifacts out from our collections to illustrate Canada's long connection with art and a painting project to tap into your creativity.
Included with Museum admission. Activities 11 am - 3 pm.
Meet long time ROM educator Beverley Galandzy who will show you rarely seen artifacts from our First Peoples collections. Learn about bark biting, bird stones and more and let them inspire your art at our activity station!
All activities take place in the First Peoples Gallery, Level 1, unless otherwise noted.
Let the collections of the ROM inspire your own watercolour painting! Whether you like the animals up in the Schad Gallery or some of the objects in the First Peoples Gallery, grab a clipboard and stool and sketch all the details you’ll need to remember later, just like Paul Kane or the Group of Seven. Then you can take your sketches and expand them into a more intricate, and colourful painting!
Early Learners Lounge (Classroom 3, Level 1)
The Early Learners Lounge is an under 5 family lounge that provides a quiet space for families to rest, nurse, change diapers and play!
