March break paint days at Alex Dufresne Gallery

Callander’s Alex Dufresne Gallery is hosting two paint workshops over the March break. There is a workshop for kids in grade one to three, which is on Wednesday, March 15, and another workshop for grade four to six students on Thursday, March 16. The gallery is located at 107 Lansdowne Street in Callander

Both sessions run from 2-4 p.m., and there is an admission fee of $5 per child. This fee covers all supplies and an instructor will be on hand to help draw out the little one’s creative side.

Children must be accompanied by an adult, as the idea is to create works of art together and draw up some March break memories.
