Family Sunday is a free arts event that occurs once per exhibition in the Gallery. For the February session, we are hosting the event to coincide with BC Family Day and the Richmond Children’s Art Festival. Join us throughout the day for exhibition tours and hands on workshops with the exhibiting artist Adad Hannah!
Pose for an unique family photo! Since 2001, Canadian artist Adad Hannah has re-imagined the 19th century practice of tableaux vivants in a series of works that places living participants in recreations of historical artworks. Families are invited to re-create a famous artwork or a scene from a Richmond story through the creation of a photo tableau in which participants pose as the characters within Adad Hannah’s large artworks.
Expand on the recreated story by making your own miniature scene from art history in a diorama! A diorama is a fun way to build an exciting scene in a small space using drawing, colouring and collage. All art supplies provided.
All ages welcome to attend. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Free with registration to the Richmond Children’s Art Festival.
