Education Studios and Seminar Rooms
Children's Festival

Families can fuel the fun factor with the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia’s annual Children’s Festival on Sunday November 17th from 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm.

Fall into Winter!

Brace yourselves for winter! Fall is here and it’s time to get cozy and creative at this year’s Children’s Festival. The studios will be in full swing with art activities about the fall and winter seasons. Create snow globes inspired by folk artist Maud Lewis’ playful winter scenes, add to our 3-D winter cityscape based on the recent stop motion animation by artists Chris Hanson and Hendrika Sonnenberg, and bask in the glow of your own moonlight painting scene. We will use a masking and resist technique to make abstract leaf paintings and elegant tree sculptures with wire and natural found materials too. 

Have some musical fun too! Join Symphony Nova Scotia’s string duo, Kerry Kavalo (viola) and Anne Simons (violin) in the Gallery for an interactive musical performance at 1:30pm.  Then, pop down to the Instrument Petting Zoo with staff from Long and MacQuade to try your hand with musical instruments.

Up and Autumn! Join us at AGNS for this fall-filled and winter-wonderful event!
