Walk into a World of Art! Beyond the Frame debuted in 2010.  It features original mural-size paintings in a three-dimensional, interactive exhibit.  Beyond the Frame was inspired by St. Albert’s Cultivate Life theme.  Visitors discover a whimsical forest with a lizard horse, aerial castles and armadillo-ed turtles peeking through earthy imagery!  Children of all ages create images that extended beyond the artist’s painting and engaged in many creative experiences, to learn and grow through the arts.

After enjoying a live preformance, children of all ages will enjoy interacting with the art and visiting a variety of inspiring art-making activity stations. This highly creative, child-centered exhibit focuses on individual exploration and discovery. Beyond the Frame is fabulous fun for everyone!
