Clay Activity: Mythical Creatures

Sun February 26, 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Flying Piglets

The special exhibition, Janet Macpherson: A Canadian Bestiary, is now open!  Inspired by the artist’s unique visual language, we’ll be holding a Family Sunday “Bestiary” series throughout the exhibition. Create hybrid animals, mythical creatures, and more!

The practice of assembling written bestiaries dates back to Medieval Times. Bestiaries were descriptive collections of real or mythical animals, often combining illustrations, scientific knowledge, and fantasy. Join us this Sunday as we celebrate this tradition and create pieces that draw from the real and the fantastic worlds. We will look at flying piglets from our own collection. Following the bestiary tradition, we will describe and name our clay creation.

Clay demonstrations will take place at 11:30 am and 1:30 pm.

Remember, admission is free for visitors 18 and under every day!*

*Children under 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult and each accompanying adult must purchase a general admission ticket. Children cannot be left unattended at any time.
