A Taste of Materials Revisited: A Day of Learning at the Botanical Gardens

A Taste of Materials Revisited
A Day of Learning and Connection at the Sunshine Coast Botanical Gardens (5941 Mason Rd., Sechelt)

Saturday, November 18, 10:00 am to 2:30 pm

Includes catered lunch

To register, contact the CCRR at 604-885-5657 or  For Sunshine Coast child care providers.


Join us for a day of exploration and documentation as we take a deeper dive into what it means to engage with art materials.  In keeping with requests for discussion-based, collective, hands-on learning experiences, this workshop will begin with a presentation about how materials and environment can be viewed as the “third teacher”, and how thoughtful engagement with materials can be so much more than making art.  We will engage with several forms of art supplies: charcoal, chalk, watercolour, clay, wire, pencil, marker and pastel.  We will have a chance to document our process with photography and reflect on our experience.


This will be a day of fun, connection and discovery, including a catered lunch, and a stroll/tour around the Sunshine Coast Botanical Gardens.
