Graffiti Gallery will also be offering a NEW diorama building workshop for tour groups during the Frontier Art Show.
The Frontier School Division Juried Art Show features a selection of artwork by students from Manitoba’s northern schools. Last year’s exhibit at Graffiti Gallery featured works by 44 students from Manitoba’s northern communities. The Graffiti Gallery is proud to continue our partnership with the Frontier School Division, and their efforts to encourage youth to communicate through creative self-expression and to develop a dialogue between students and their community.
The Graffiti Gallery will be offering art workshops and tours for school groups during the Frontier School Division Art Show. These workshops will engage youth in a hands-on activity, working together to create a large-scale collaborative diorama exploring the concept of community, to be exhibited alongside the Frontier School Division artwork. Working with a variety of materials including drawing and recycled and found objects, youth will work in small groups to create sculptural content to add to the dynamic exhibition that will continue to grow throughout the length of the Frontier School Division exhibition.
Groups can choose between two time slots: 10:00am to 11:30am and/or 1:00pm to 2:30pm. Workshops are 1 hour long and groups will receive a 30-minute tour of the exhibit space prior to the workshop. Please note the maximum number of participants per workshop is 35 people.
