As Picasso said, “every child is an artist.”
The 31st annual Through the Eyes of a Child exhibition is centred around the theme of Canada 150, featuring ceramic works and prints by students from WAG Studio art classes. In this year’s exhibit young artists share their perspectives on familiar themes of family, friends, favourite pastimes, and Canadian wildlife. Students who attend art classes are from a broad spectrum of ethnic and economic backgrounds, representing who we are as a community and as a nation. Through art making, children from across Winnipeg have the opportunity to exchange ideas, exercise their imaginations, and explore their creativity.
The second floor also features The Pooh Bear Gallery, a permanent display of artworks, photographs, and memorabilia presented by the APC that tell the story of A.A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh, and the fictional character’s factual connection to this city.
