About this Event

Esker is excited to invite Tom Brown and Nikki Martens from Plein Air Outdoor Arts back to host an imaginative series of workshops for children and families this fall. Drawing inspiration from Esker’s current exhibiting artists, Plein Air will create and share two online family (or friend) challenges encouraging participants to disrupt their domestic routines and partake in a little absurdity, hilarity and joyful creative expression throughout the month of October. A third in-person challenge and celebration will take place at the end of the month on 24 October. Get ready to perform a balancing act, make a masterpiece of unlikely objects, and pull up to our outdoor picnic-drive-in-style show of shenanigans.

Online group challenge instructions will be shared on Esker’s social media channels and e-newsletter the weeks of October 5th & 12th. These challenges will be open to all members of the public. Participants are encouraged to tag @eskerfoundation in their photo and video responses to each challenge which will be included in our month end celebration.

An in-person, outdoor drive-in celebration will be held at a TBA location, October 24th, 2-4pm.

Registration essential for this experience, max. 45 participants. Please book tickets for each person in your group.
