Collage Collage is great great!

We’re in Vancouver and have been back to Collage Collage for several visits. It’s simply fabulous. Akka can’t get enough of it. This is the child who never wants to go anywhere but she popped her thumb out of her mouth and found reserves of energy whenever a trip to Collage Collage was mentioned. Malli used up all his sit-and-draw powers on the first two visits so we left him with Granny for our last drop-in class.

Akka is an artist. She spends hours at the arts and crafts table on her daycare days and brings home dozens of pieces of artwork. At Collage Collage she explored new materials, methods, and media.

At each class, the teacher reads the kids a book – often (but not always) about a famous artist. Then the kids use the images in the book as their inspiration for their own piece of art. Thus, we can now adorn our walls with our own versions of Georgia O’Keeffe and Frida Kahlo:

Thanks Erin! Still pushing for that Toronto franchise…

  1. Inspired! Literally. Love the idea.

  2. Thanks Leah! It’s always a delight to have you and the kids around. It was a good 2 weeks to focus on some fine female artists too. Toronto location as soon as I can get the funding secured!
