Maple leaves on March break

Handing in that final assignment. Waiting for that last school bell. Picking up junk food from the grocery store. Jumping for joy at the start of March break.

The McMichael knows how much your kids love a little rest and fun as the seasons change, so we are offering an accessible program to honour it with art and a special gallery tour on Saturday, March 16 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Canadian Maple Leaf Adventure is a multi-sensory exploration of the Canadian landscape and how it is captured in the paintings of the Group of Seven. Through hands-on activities, both inside the gallery and outdoors, you will experience the various shapes, textures, colours and compositions of landscape, and discover how paintings can depict this natural world.

This special needs family program begins outdoors with activities that engage us with the landscape around the gallery grounds and into the exhibition spaces. Inside, you’ll discover Group of Seven landscape paintings through fun tactile activities, including handling art objects, and textured reproductions. Participants may also choose to assemble a felt landscape picture or experience a short audio-visual film montage, which beautifully captures the spirit of the Canadian landscape.

Reservation is required.
Please visit our website for more details.

Hope to see you there!
