This winter, join us at the Kamloops Art Gallery for forty-five minutes of fun, mess and exploration with baby-friendly edible art materials.
In January, we will explore drawing—making dots, lines, shapes and creatures on giant sheets of paper. In February, we will make our own sculpture dough and experiment with squishing, rolling, pinching and stacking. In March, we will get really messy experimenting with paint—painting with fingers, brushes, cars and dinosaurs.
All of our materials are made using natural pigments and dyes derived from plants, safe for young children who think everything is food. Remember that making art with toddlers is messy—dress in something that you won’t mind getting a little beet or spinach pigment paint splatter on.
Jodi is originally from Montréal, Quebec but spent a few years in Northern New Brunswick after graduating from University. She moved to Kamloops in the Spring of 2010 with her family and works as an educational assistant. Her 7 and 8 year old keep her really busy as they love exploring the area and enjoying what Kamloops has to offer!
