Art Camp BAGs
The Art Camp BAG provides the next best thing to our day camps – a gallery experience in your own home!
Just like our regular school and gallery programming, the Art Camp BAG encourages kids to create original artwork with inspiration from our amazing collection.
Each Art Camp BAG contains special materials, instructions, and links to video tutorials to create 3 fun artworks plus warm up activities. We explore ideas from the selected artworks and develop new skills based on the artistic styles and techniques.
The Art Camp BAG is intended for ages 6-12 and each activity is designed to be adapted for various skill levels.
Two themes will be available this summer: NB Explorers and Surrealism
NB Explorers - Available Now!
Staycation time! Do you know the story of Grandfather Akwiten, the 200 year old canoe that traveled across the ocean and back? Grandfather is back home beside the Wolastoq river. Construct and paint a starry shadow box using LED lights and a canoe that bobs on the Wolastoq waves.
Investigate mysterious creatures like Fredericton artist Janice Wright Cheney. Bugs and beasts need healthy environments to live in! Create a puppet and get video footage of them exploring your neighbourhood.
Layer pictures and words with stencils and monotype printmaking like famous Acadian poet and artist Herménégilde Chiasson. What message would you put on a billboard?
Surrealism - Pre-order now! Available July 28
Life is strange and surrealism can help us work with weirdness. Salvador Dali combined hyper real imagery in a dreamlike way to make sense of history, science, and religion. Practice step-by-step animal drawings and create a mixed media collage.
Construct an imaginary landscape like Montreal artist Holly King. Make sunprints to include in your landscape diorama.
Get experimental and surprise yourself with what you can do! Tie-dye combines skill and luck with unique results. Use watercolours, salt crystals, and play with light to create a large abstract painting.
Learn from Saint John painter Deanna Musgrave!
Each Art Camp BAG costs $50 for members, $60 for non-members (plus tax and includes delivery)
All Art Camp BAGs will be delivered right to your door within the Fredericton area only (30km radius)
