The Comox Valley Art Gallery is offering two sessions of “Art for the Everyday” art camps for young people aged 5 to 11 this August.

The multi-age camps will take place Aug. 11-14 and Aug. 25-28 at the Comox Valley Art Gallery studio, 580 Duncan Ave., from 9 a.m. to noon.

Led by local artist Jennifer Margetish, participants will explore and experiment with mixed-media process art. Each day will begin with conversations about art to inspire the art-making activities that follow.

Each participant will have an opportunity to learn about materials, processes and ideas while working on art projects independently and collaboratively.

The cost is $90 for the full four-day course, or $30 for drop-in. Materials are provided.

Margetish has a BFA from Emily Carr University, and lives and works in the Comox Valley. She is a mixed media artist, ceramicist and a painter.

For more information or to register, please send an email to jenjenjam@live.com or call the gallery at 250-338-6211.
