Reach offers new programs for the fall season

Appreciate how math, technology, science, social studies and art work together in the free program, Think OUTSIDE the Art Box

Come in from the rain and enjoy the fall 2013 programs offered by the Reach Gallery Museum Abbotsford.

From Heritage Holiday camps to free programs looking at how art, science, technology, math and social studies work together, kids can experience a truly artful fall.

Appreciate how math, technology, science, social studies and art work together in the free program, Think OUTSIDE the Art Box.

On Nov. 7, from 3:30 to 5 p.m., kids ages eight to 12 will get messy in the studio, trying their hands at different art forms and techniques that fuse school subjects into one creative project. Register your kids today. Please note, signing in and signing out your child is required.

Looking for a really fun way to spend your day off school? On Nov. 29, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., kids ages six to 12 will have a blast at the Pro-D Day Camp @ The Reach. Taking inspiration from the Reach’s world-class contemporary art and heritage exhibitions, kids will flex their creative minds by trying new techniques and processes in art making. Only $35 for the day. This camp is a nut-free camp, and brown bag lunch.

Ring in the New Year in vintage style with The Reach’s A Very Heritage Holiday Camp. We’ll decorate the studio with heritage-themed decorations, play skits and games, design great holiday gifts and more.

It takes place Dec. 30, 31, Jan. 2 and 3 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and kids ages six to 12 can register under the single day option for $25, or sign up for all four days for $90.
