The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery has partnered with the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition to offer six, one-hour Power Kids sessions drawing upon the themes of discovery and reinvention highlighted throughout the exhibition this year. Each workshop will begin with an engaging group discussion and tour inspired by artists in the exhibition, followed by a hands-on art-making activity resulting in a personal response.

In these workshops we will act as fictional time travellers reporting from Toronto’s future landscape! Inventing our own imaginative architecture and cultural scenes, we will design and write postcards describing our observations and adventures in the new city. Then, using watercolour, ink, and collage papers, we will bring our postcards to life and mail them to family and friends across Canada.

This Power Kids program is presented as part of the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition. Drop-in sessions will take place on Saturday, 15 July and Sunday, 16 July at the following times: 11AM-12PM, 12:30PM-1:30PM and 2PM-3PM.
