Art in Action had a lot of fun at the Welcome Back BBQ at Kingsway College this past weekend. Students were inspired by the season and I love the colours they mixed for the background. We used tape to make off our trees and sponges and acrylic paint to fill in the fall colours. After peeling off the tape they added colour and texture to the tree trunks and branches with oil pastels.

Welcome Back!

Jamie McLean 4

Welcome back to the new school year! For me, September feels like more like the New Year than January. New classes, new school supplies and new experiences. Art in Action is very excited to launch our new fall program:


Travel through time and explore the visual arts with Art in Action!

Climb aboard our time machine and learn about art through the centuries.  Our art adventure begins 20,000 years ago at the Lascaux caves famous for their Palaeolithic cave paintings. We will travel through the Ming Dynasty, visit the Vikings, learn about the abstract art movement and more.

Inspired by famous artists through the ages, our program has an art history component as well as the tactile experience of working with a variety of materials such as watercolours, acrylics, collage materials, oil pastels, chalk pastels and more. To register for our program please go to our registration page on the date registration begins for your school. Questions? Contact us at
