2022 March Break Art Camps

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Session 2: March 14 – 18

Oakville Galleries' Day camps are designed to keep kids inspired while school's out! Participants will be introduced to different art movements and make a number of varied artworks allowing them to explore new techniques and their creativity. Different themes will be looked at through participants' masterful creations, through dress up and engagement, creating many fun-filled projects. Young artists will stretch their thinking and develop skills while having a blast. Make sure to come dressed for the weather as we burn some energy outside and get inspired by the winter landscape in Gairloch Gardens. March Break Camps are for kids, ages 6 to 12.


In the event of a closure or changes to provincial health guidelines, Oakville Galleries will instead offer virtual programming over Zoom throughout the listed dates with provided materials ready for pickup in advance of the camp start date.


Each session is $280. per child; with a Family Membership, each session is $238. per child.


A Family Membership at Oakville Galleries costs $55 per year and offers many benefits, including a 15% discount on our Art Camps and programs each season.

EXTENDED CARE

According to Halton Region public health guidelines regarding learning cohorts, Oakville Galleries cannot provide extended care for 2022. We thank you for your understanding.

HEALTH & SAFETY

The safety of our campers and staff is our top priority. To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, Oakville Galleries programs meet health guidelines designed in consultation with the Town of Oakville and in alignment with provincial health guidelines for day camps. Guidelines include lower ratios and capacity, encouraging physical distancing, mandatory health screening, and as much instruction outdoors as possible.

The camp class will consist of up to eight campers and one instructor working exclusively with the assigned group. The group will have their own studio space and controlled access to washrooms. Interactions between different groups will be kept to a minimum in order to avoid the mixing of cohorts.

Children will be seated at separate tables. Each child will be provided with a personal art kit which will be stored in the studio space and not shared with other students. Our staff will create seating arrangements to allow students to sit at least two metres away from other participants.

During the program, art instructors will ensure that all students practice social distancing measures. Students and staff are required to wear face masks at all times in accordance with Halton Region public health guidelines, and each learning space will be equipped with hand sanitation stations and a sink for thorough hand washing. We kindly request that all parents and guardians review social distancing practices with their child prior to the start of the session.

HEALTH SCREENING

At this time, Oakville Galleries requires anyone 12 years of age or older to provide proof of identification and proof of full COVID-19 vaccination (or medical exemption) before entering or accessing the facilities.

Parents must successfully complete a health screening for their child(ren) prior to admittance into class upon drop-off and complete a form. Parents are required to take their child(ren)'s temperature in the morning prior to class. The health screening will identify anyone with COVID-19 related symptoms including fever, recent travel, recent contact with an individual with COVID-19 or symptoms. Any participant with an unsuccessful screening will not be permitted into the program in accordance with Provincial and Regional guidelines.

An email outlining all necessary information listed above will be sent to registrants prior to the program start date.
