We welcome kids and their families to visit The Power Plant on February 19 for the Power Kids: Remembering you workshop inspired by Brenda Draney’s paintings!
Memories relate to the past. Brenda Draney’s paintings are inspired by remembering personal memories and experiences. After a tour of Brenda Draney’s portrait paintings in the Canadian Tire Gallery, participants will draw a loved one’s portrait from memory.
