Amazearts Portrait Project

October 22, 2016 to January 29, 2017

The Discovery Room is proud to exhibit artworks by young students of Amazearts Studio. The focus of art classes at Amazearts Studio is to help little artists to discover their personal style and learn about principles of art, fundamentals, form, perspective, value, tone, texture and different techniques in all the art mediums. This season, in response to Glenbow's feature exhibition, 1920s Modernism in Montreal: The Beaver Hall Group, Amazearts students have created a self-portrait based on a chosen emotion with reference to a colour-emotion chart.

Family Yoga Sessions

1:00-2:30pm, November 12 and 19, 2016
Free with admission or membership, registration required.

Join us for a fun, all-ages yoga session outside of our Art of Asia gallery! Bring your yoga matt, water bottle and make sure to wear comfortable clothes. Transformation of body and spirit from static to dynamic is the goal of each session; with the use of stretching and balance to begin and Savasana and Om to end. Following the class, a brief tour and meditation session will take place among the Buddha sculptures inside the gallery. Space is limited! Email to reserve your spot!

Art Activities

October 22, 2016 to January 29, 2017

Pop Art Portraits
Be inspired by the incredible portrait paintings in Glenbow's feature exhibition, 1920s Modernism in Montreal: The Beaver Hall Group, and put a contemporary twist on your own self portrait photograph! We'll snap your picture, print it out, and give you the supplies to draw and colour yourself in a fun new way.

Modernist Collages
Who says abstract art can't be figurative? Be inspired by renowned Alberta artist Maxwell Bates and many others presented in Glenbow's feature exhibition, Rough Country: The Strangely Familiar in mid-20th Century Alberta Art, and create a distorted still life collage using a variety of materials.

Explorations in Art
Put on your exploration cap and follow the clues in the latest versions of our art scavenger hunt. We've got hidden treasures in all of the art displayed in our feature exhibitions this season, so be sure to find them all. Return your completed sheet to the Discovery Room for a prize. Fun for the whole family!
