Surrey Art Gallery invites families to let their creative side out at the Gallery’s Family Day on Sunday (June 14).

Family Day at the Surrey Art Gallery

Exhibition-inspired day June 14 for families to get creative together.

Remember how much fun you had the last time you got out paints or clay with your kids and got lost in the art of making something together?

The Surrey Art Gallery invites families to let their creative side out at the Gallery’s Family Day on Sunday (June 14) from noon to 4 p.m. with hands-on art-making activities and a theatre performance inspired by the exhibitions. The suggested donation is $4 per child.

Create an artist’s journal and see the current exhibition Views from the Southbank II, recording your discoveries and observations along the way. Then, participate in art activities inspired by the artworks on display. Or contribute to a collaborative cardboard construction site inspired by Helma Sawatzky’s fantastical photographs of local architecture.

Like Jennifer Clark’s Rorschach-style paintings, you’ll create your own mirrored print to proudly display at home. You’ll also have the chance to make a portrait in clay and to adorn yourself with a marvellous Mehndi tattoo.

At 2 p.m., the Vancouver TheatreSports League will have you in stitches with their interactive improv skits based on suggestions and stories from you, the audience. Free tickets on site; seating is limited.

At the end of your visit, you’re invited to pick up discount coupons to ride the Bear Creek Park Train and draw the view as you ride the rails, inspired by the artwork of Michael Markowsky.

The art gallery is located at 13750 88 Ave. Call 604-501-5566 or check www.surrey.ca/artgallery for more information.
