Inspiration Studio Art Camps & Events
Each and every year, there are two themed art camps offered, and two public Youth Markets for registered students. One in June and one in December. All free to attend, with donations to local animal rescue foundations as admission. We also host a special Selfie Station with a holiday themed backdrop and fun props!
In addition to these, all five programs participate in the Okotoks Art Gallery's Gingerbread Station contest. This year, marks our third year. How do we do this?
Each program will have between 3 and 6 members and they will choose a theme and a prevailing colour to work with to create a Team Board Submission. Then, each member will create an individual element to work on to be placed on their Team Boards.
Once completed, their work will be transported to the Okotoks Art Gallery for voting. 1st place and honorable mentions are awarded in the form of gift cards from the art gallery. These students are up against the public entries, as well as their individual programs.
We all have a LOT of fun doing these - even when we start on them right after Hallowe'en!
