Kids’ class perfect for nature-loving young artists

Children will create their design on paper, and then proceed to painting details on rocks and leaves

Kids who love art and nature will love ‘Painting with Nature’s Found Objects’ – an upcoming class at the Campbell River Art Gallery.

The class, for children aged seven to 12, takes place over two sessions, Wednesdays, Sept. 18 and Sept. 25 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Led by artist and instructor Perry Johnston, participants will learn leaf and rock painting using acrylic paint and acrylic inks.

The course will focus on line and design elements, using traditional patterns to create original works of art.

Children will create their design on paper, and then proceed to painting details on rocks and leaves.

They’ll finish the projects by sealing with spray, attaching magnets or creating a dried flower arrangement.

The cost for ‘Painting with Nature’s Found Objects’ with Perry Johnston is $27 for members of the Campbell River Art Gallery and $37 for non-members. All supplies are included. All Children’s and Teen Autumn Classes are generously sponsored by Tom and Koko Pallan.

Stop by the Campbell River Art Gallery Tuesday to Saturday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., call 250-287-2261 or email programs@crartgallery.ca for more information.
