Do you have a budding artist on your hands? Instructors Genna Kusch and Chrissy Poitras are offering a five-day summer workshop at the Baxter Arts Centre designed to build your child’s creative confidence. Over the five days, we will focus on the theme of landscape, both locally and globally. Through painting, printmaking, writing and science we will create dynamic art to reflect our ideas about our landscape. Works of art made during the workshop series will be shown in a public art exhibition at the end of our week.
