Registration is open for classes and camps at Confederation Centre of the Arts this winter. Exploring Visual Arts is a six-week class for young students to explore the elements of art through a series of diverse drawing, painting and sculpting activities. At the end of the course, students will create an artwork in the medium of their choosing using the skills they have learned throughout the class to inform their final work. Activities will be supplemented by Gallery visits.Classes are held on Saturday from January 14–February 18 with Exploring Visual Arts I (ages 6–8) from 9–10 am and Exploring Visual Arts II (ages 9–12) from 11 am–12 noon. Winter Break Camps run through the extended mid-term break and offer an opportunity to explore art through both hands on and observational experiences with tours of current exhibitions at the Gallery and a backstage tour of the Sobey Family Theatre. Exploring the Arts Camp (ages 6–12) runs February 21–24 and offers a range of arts education, from drawing and painting to music and dance.
