A rainy Sunday in January is the perfect time to take the kids to Super Sunday at the Vancouver Art Gallery
. Every third Sunday of the month, the VAG holds this hands on event to expose kids to art of all kinds. We took my 6 year old and a buddy (things are always more fun if you bring a friend). To complement the current B.C. Binning exhibit, kids were provided a sheet with clues to find different paintings, and then provided space and materials to do sketches and watercolors inspired by the exhibit. Other stations are set up throughout the gallery, featuring different media and themes. We were not the only ones with this idea, so it was fairly busy, but everyone seems to go with the flow. Make sure you use the coatcheck, and get your hand stamped for re-entry as no snacks are allowed in the gallery. It is a good idea to take a break and crash on the couches in the foyer between projects. Kids are free with an adult admission; donation encouraged to cover the cost of materials. The best part? They clean up the mess left behind!
