 Child Programming at the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery May 2019

o it seems like Spring is working on "springing" with the little bit of rain we've gotten. MAG staff are looking forward to the return of warmer weather and everything that comes with it: flowers, bugs, and butterflies, oh my! The location of the MAG allows us to enjoy it all throughout the summer months.

Participants of this May's MAGnificent Saturdays can drop-in to make mini Succulent Jungles, try their hand at Blind Contour Portraits, and more. The closer we get to warmer days means we're coming up on our last couple months of Day Camps as well. That's ok though, because this summer we have seven week-long summer camps running throughout July and August. New this year is our "Children Take Charge of Community Connections" camp, running July 22-26. 
For a print-friendly PDF of MAG programming this May that's in an appropriate format for school newsletters, click HERE or on the large, dark purple button near the bottom of this email. Thank you for your support.
