Each year, the Art Gallery of St Albert (AGSA) holds a fundraiser to raise much needed funds to support programming and exhibitions. Raise a cup to our newly renovated barrier-free building! Join us for MUGSHOTS! This month-long sale and clay extravaganza runs from June 6 – 29 and features hands-on programs, professional demonstrations, creativity and silly puns, all with the goal of raising funds and sharing our passion for art with the entire community.
Artists have generously donated a variety of mugs and cups to our cause. Patrons and supporters purchase these delightful drinking receptacles for $40 each. A selection of community created mugs are also available. Watch our social media to learn more about the artists and their mugs.
Bring your little rascal to the Gallery to build a mug from scratch. Using coil building, kids will shape and texture their own mug, adding their own creativity to pattern and shape it to be their own.
Date: Thursday, June 13, 4–5:30pm
Cost: $35 per child
