Child Programming at the
Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery (MAG)

June 2018 Edition

Dear Sheila,

As we approach June, we also approach the end of our 2017-18 school year programming at the MAG. Our Day @ the Museum: Day Camps wrap up after June 15th, and Mini MAG, our drop-in art program for the little ones, will take a break in July and August. But, have no fear! Our #familyfriendly MAGnificent Saturdays art drop-in runs year round, and our week-long summer camps will surely keep the kids busy this July and August. 

Our most recent exhibition, The Writing on the Wall: Works of Dr. Joane Cardinal-Schubert, RCA, opened on May 5th. Joane (1942-2009) was an Indigenous artist local to Red Deer, and attended high school at Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School. This exhibition reflects the cyclical nature of Joane's work, including pivotal pieces in painting, drawing, printmaking, collage, ceramic, and installation.The exhibition is on display until August 12, 2018: be sure to drop by for a visit and check it out!
 
For details about programs planned this June and into the summer, please click HERE or on the large dark purple button near the bottom of this email, for a print-friendly PDF of upcoming MAG programming that is in an appropriate format for school newsletters. Our communications regarding Child Programming at the MAG will resume in the fall. Thank you for your continued support, and have a fantastic summer!
 

DAY CAMPS - JUNE 2018

A Day @ the Museum: Day Camps is our one-day day camp program, now in it's fourth year. These camps provide children with a fun way to spend the day during a teacher in-service day (PD day). Every camp consists of a theme based art or craft activity, several indoor and outdoor activities (weather permitting), and free time in the galleries to explore. Our camps are designed for children aged 6-12.
