About this Event

Unmasking Imagination | A Creative Wellness Spring Break Art Camp

March 29 – April 2, 2021

We are pleased to partner with our Inglewood neighbour, YW Calgary on this Creative Wellness Spring Break Art Camp for Kids.

Developed collaboratively by Esker Foundation, local artist Katie Green, and YW Calgary, this creative online series combines art making and mindfulness tools. Over the course of three workshops, participants will learn about portraiture and mask-masking as tools of self-exploration and self-expression. Through character development, sketching, and cardboard sculpture, Katie will lead children through the process of making and embodying their own masks.

Each session will also include mindfulness techniques and practices offered by a facilitator of the YW Calgary’s Mindful Moments program for children. Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention, on purpose, to the present moment. Practicing mindfulness can help children focus, regulate their emotions and make measured decisions.

At the end of the series, children will have the option of exhibiting their masks or a photograph of their mask in Bridge Space, a new gallery within Esker’s larger exhibition space dedicated to showcasing work created by young people through engagement with our exhibitions.

Art Camp Schedule:

March 29, 31 and April 2, 10am-12pm

March 30 and April 1, 10am - 11am

Workshops will take place online. Registration for the full week is required. Recommended for ages 8-12.
