Nov: We kick off our season of Family Sundays with an ode to our most beloved of pets – the dog! Inspired by the art of Alex Colville, join us for fun-filled, family-friendly art and play activities all month long. It's a dog's world!

Jan: Three Generations. Explorations in art-making using our bodies – from the perspective of three generations in a family. We look at growing up, beauty and ourselves! Create crazy mixed-up family exquisite corpse pages, imagine your adult self-collages and B and Small Me body panels. Inspired by Suzy Lake exhibition.
Feb & Mar: Scratching and Sampling. All kinds of things inspired by Basquiat. He believed everything was connected and absorbed everything around him to make symbol-laden art, focusing on social issues, music, racism and African American heroes. Join us for Family Sundays that celebrate his art in the innovative of ways.
Apr: Yarn Bombing and Knitting and More! Where street art meets yarn. We're yarn bombing, or creating "knitting graffiti" as it is called. Explore the brand new old world of textiles through weaving, arm knitting, crocheting, wrapping and stringing galore. It all starts with a little bit of yarn!
May: From the Forest to the Sea. Looking way down from the treetops all the way to the sea... Exploring the art of Emily Carr and the indigenous peoples' connections to the land and sea.
