Homeschool Art Days – November to May

Homeschool Art days take place once per month from November to May.  Art Gallery of St. Albert provides educational art programs instructed by professional art instructors right in the heart of downtown St. Albert. Our not for profit art programs are perfectly designed for children who are 5 to 13 years of age. Programs are 1.5 hours in length and parents are welcome to stay and learn right along with us!

 

Workshop: South American Worry Dolls
Date: November 28, 2019
Time: 11:30 am–1 pm
Location: St. Albert Place, 5 St. Anne Street (Multi-craft studio)
Cost: $15 per child (SHINE members save $2!)

 

These small colorful dolls are traditionally made in South American cultures such as Peru and Guatemala. According to legend, if you tell your worries to a doll before going to bed at night and put it under your pillow, you will wake up the next morning and your worries will be gone. Students learn to make their very own worry doll with colorful wire and embroidery thread. They then decorate a small wooden box in which to keep their doll safe.
