Story-gami Workshop Jamie Chen, Madison Mayhew, Mary Seto, John Song, and Patrick Takata
Create a drawing inspired by a story on a colourful sheet of paper. Learn how to fold your story into an origami link that will be joined with others to make one long continuous chain of different cultural stories.
“Can you draw? No? Perfect, this workshop is for you! In this workshop you will have fun creating drawings without looking at them. These drawings will inspire you to share thoughts, questions and ideas that emerge while drawing.
Connect the Dots Walk Andrea Landivar Einstoss, Hana Kujawa, and Emma Plested
This special guide will lead you on a drawing inspired walk from the CAG to ArtStarts while providing interesting social and historical information about the area. Activities in the booklet include texture rubbings, eye spy, tracing and observational drawing.
Drawing on the City Walk Mariah Brusatore, Michael King, Mo Qutob, and Justine Zimmerman
With sidewalk chalk attached to sticks, we will be creating drawings that use the city as a canvas. As we walk we will create a pathway of colourful lines, stopping to create drawings based on things we see along the way.
The Contemporary Art Gallery (CAG) is a non-profit public art gallery dedicated to the research, exhibition, education and documentation of contemporary visual art as it is practiced locally through to internationally. It aspires to generate significant audiences for its innovative and diverse programmes through free access and a profile that is international in scope.
The CAG is the longest standing independent public art gallery dedicated to presenting contemporary visual art in Vancouver. We deliver between ten and twenty exciting exhibitions and off-site projects each year, provide an extensive range of learning and public programs for adults, families and children, offer a series of residencies for Canadian and international artists directly contributing to the local scene, and publish insightful catalogues that create a lasting legacy of exhibited work. We do this while offering all of our programs free of charge through an admission by donation policy. We believe that access to, enjoyment of and engagement with contemporary art and the surrounding debates should be available and open to all.
