A lively and colourful break from school in the light and airy workshops of a downtown museum.
Day Camp participants will enjoy a unique experience exploring aspects of the journey of an exceptional multidisciplinary artist: Françoise Sullivan*. The program offers a mix of activities ranging from abstract painting and sculpture to assemblage, sound installation, choreography, etching, drawing and making costumes for stage plays. All interspersed with visits from comical characters!
Also, after watching Der Lauf der Dinge, 1987, a video by artists Peter Fischli and David Weiss, participants will get a chance to bump things into each other by building an installation in which many objects are arranged to create a huge domino effect, with entirely unexpected results and uninterrupted motion, we hope!
*The impressive Françoise Sullivan exhibition will be over when the Day Camp is being held during school break. But we’re inviting day-camp participants and their families to visit the exhibition free of charge until January 20, 2019. Simply show your proof of registration at the ticket counter for free entry to the exhibitions.
On Friday at 4 p.m., this special time at the MAC will wrap up with an awesome art opening where family and friends will get to admire the results of each participant’s many creative efforts.
The MAC’s Day Camp has won four awards of excellence from the Association des camps certifiés du Québec: for Innovation in 1997, and for Best Program in 1998, 2006 and 2010.
