In-Person

Children (1-12 years)

Location: Neil Balkwill Civic Arts Centre's Weaving Studio, 2420 Elphinstone Street, Regina

Inspired by artist Rachel Broussard's lacy collages that speculatively reorganize the phylogenetic tree, children are invited to image new hybrids of plant and animal in this collage activity.

Cut vivid flowers, fish, birds and mammals from scientific textbooks and nature magazines, then paste them together to create festive chains, while speculating on the purpose of colouration, inherited traits, the ways plants and animals interact, and human uses of plants.

This art activity for children who can use scissors (independently or with the assistance of a parent or guardian) is guided by Art Gallery of Regina staff. Children can take home their multispecies chain to decorate their rooms.

This activity is offered in conjunction with the Art Gallery of Regina's exhibition We Are All Electric Beings and with the Neil Balkwill Civic Arts Centre.
