During this challenging time, where many in our community are self isolating, home-stayed, and are taking care of children, it’s important that people can still find beauty, inspiration, challenges and activities for themselves and their loved ones. The Art Gallery of Grande Prairie is launching Art at Home, a series of educational, interactive, and create-at-home videos and activities to combat isolation, a desire for continued learning, and a craving for creative exploration.
Executive Director, Jeff Erbach, explains that the program is a natural extension of the Gallery mandate in these strange times, “We are here to enrich people’s experiences through art, and as we cannot do that in a live setting, we’ll take it to a diversity of other platforms. People can expect to see a wide series of social media posts about art ideas, projects, and more, in the coming weeks and months. We really want it to be meaningful however it can be, whether it’s just a welcome distraction, something inspiring, or assists people who want to maintain positive activities for their children.”
The projects, social media posts, and more, will all be via the Gallery’s Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts, and on a dedicated page on our website called, Art at Home. As the program develops, more ideas on delivering activities to the community will be explored.
