Creative Thursdays are a great way to explore art techniques on selected Thursday evenings. Drop in for demonstrations by working artists, and get creative yourself!

During Black History Month, Ottawa’s Kosisochukwu Nnebe will lead a collage-based activity examining the concept of identity, in response to selected works of art from the national collection.

Participants will be invited to experiment with Nnebe’s artistic process, creating unique self-portraits by cutting out and overlaying photographs of themselves on an acetate surface. Make sure you bring enough photographs to work with!

This activity is intended for beginners and experts alike. 

Free admission

Special Edition!
Staff from DeSerres will be on hand, offering coupons, product demonstrations and an opportunity to win a $50 gift card.
