Tuesday Feb. 16th - Friday Feb. 19th
9.00 AM - 3.00 PM *NEW Full Day Program
Ages 7 - 12
$120.00/child

This year the Mann Art Gallery is partnering with the Prince Albert Arts Centre to offer 4 full days of Art Camp programming (9:00 AM - 3:00 PM).

Join us as we learn about famous artists from around the world and right here in Saskatchewan in the mornings at the Mann Art Gallery (9 - 12:00 pm). Painters, sculptors, architects, and traditional artists, too. Each day we are introduced to a different artists' vision and we'll learn about their favourite techniques:  Frida Kahlo, Wassily Kandinsky, Joe Fafard, George Glenn...and YOU!  Then, at 12:00 pm, kids will be escorted to the Arts Centre where they will be “Little Chefs” making their own lunch, and enjoying acting and drama activities until 3:00 pm.
It's Art + Cooking + Drama = Creative Daze.

Children are asked to bring a snack for 10:30 am break, and to wear your "messy" clothes!  

Please note that for this camp, registration must be made at the PA Arts Centre (1010 Central Ave, 306-953-4811.)

Professional Development Opportunity

CARFAC Workshop:

The Art of Framing Art


with Heather Cline



Saturday February 27th
2:00 - 5:00 PM
The Mann Art Gallery

Free for MAG members
$35.00 for non-members

This workshop will start with a brief historical tour of framing style and methods, with a spotlight on some contemporary framing strategies.  We will then get down to some practical considerations, including: framing aesthetics, archival concerns, weighing economy and expertise, and finally some simple how-to. The session will include a demonstration for a simple method for framing small scale works on paper, panel and canvas/panel works.  Participants will have lots of opportunity to ask questions regarding their own framing dilemmas. 

About the instructor: Mixed media Artist Heather Cline MFA spent the first three years after completing her BFA at the University of Saskatchewan working as a professional picture framer at Art Placement in Saskatoon. She also had the opportunity to work as a part time gallery preparator with the excellent staff at the Mendel Art Gallery. These experiences combined with a strange need to work in multiple media, from painting to wood carving to works that incorporate audio/video elements, has resulted in life-long obsession with effective art framing and gallery display.
