March 15th - Gallery Tour
Virtual tour of Equipment-Space – Mat Glenn & Lucas Glenn, join Pippa, Alison & their young artist helpers Ankaret and Eddie for an interactive tour of the latest exhibition at the Lake Country Art Gallery.
This 45 minute session will explore and question the conceptual art on display, in an approachable way for families (ages 7 and up). What message is the work expressing? What is your message?
Collecting objects from our own spaces and places, we will encourage participants to explore the potential themes and ideas for creation of their own responses to the exhibition. A follow-up session the next week will delve further into conceptual art and how families can create their own work for the next exhibition at the gallery.

The SMS sessions will be facilitated by Pippa Dean-Veerman and Alison Beaumont, they are the Community Engagement Coordinators at Lake Country Art Gallery. We aspire to enable student artists to grow voice through art, individually and collaboratively. Taking time for reflection (in-breath) and adopting a design thinking approach. We believe that studio thinking and artistic process are present in everyone.
