The Art Gallery of Hamilton’s March Break Mania!, Monday, March 16 to 20, is an engaging week-long Art Camp programme in which children, in three separate progammes, discover art forms through the centuries by participating in hands-on art-making with artist-educators and Gallery exploration.
For children ages 6 to 9 and ages 10 and older, Art Through the Ages uses AGH exhibitions as a starting point, helping children to develop observation and insight into the works of Canadian and international artists. This programme is available in both morning and afternoon sessions. Participants may sign up for one day or for the entire week, with the further option of signing up for half or full days.
For children ages 3 to 6, accompanied by a caregiver, the AGH offers a special programme for the youngest of artists. In Masterpiece ME!, available in a 9:30 am to 11:30 am morning session only, children and their caregivers explore new art materials and techniques and learn child-friendly activities and recipes for home projects. Participants may sign up for one day or the entire week.
For AGH Members, half-day attendance is $15 per day; full day is $30. An entire week of half-day sessions is $75; full day for the entire week is $150.
For Non Members, half-day attendance is $18: full day is $36. An entire week of half-day is $90; full day for the entire week is $175.
After camp care is available from 4:00 to 5:30 pm for $5 per day.
