Our art activities are now being offered virtually to support the safety and well-being of our community. A new collection of art-making demonstrations, educational videos, and activity worksheets, to view and download, will be launched at the beginning of every month.
 
November: We Remember 

Inspired by the stories of military duty seen in Black Drones in the Hive, KWAG presents a month of Remembrance Day art and learning, in partnership with the Kitchener Public Library. 

Following the theme of remembrance, activity sheets are inspired by Deanna Bowen’s examination of her family background, prompting families to reflect on their own personal histories with a guide for intergenerational interviews.
