Winter registration has begun. Is your child looking to try a new activity?
If you are planning out your winter activities with the kids, you may be looking at the seemingly popular and most often chatted about ones like indoor soccer, skating or gymnastics.
But if you want a new experience for the kids, turn to the Nepean Creative Arts Centre and the Nepean Visual Arts Centre for ideas that will interest your children of any age (including your teen!)
For some kids, they just don’t love team sports. For others, they are creative and looking for an outlet for that creativity. In many cases, these activities are in addition to swim lessons, hockey, dance and other sports. It’s an amazing feeling to be able to have so many options in this City that we can provide our kids with a variety of choices that help support their interests.
Not sure what those ideas are? Here are some classes from the Winter Program that really caught my eye. Thinking about what my own children would like, these stood out as having the potential to really captivate kids of many ages.
Ages 9-12 at the Nepean Visual Arts Centre.
Kids will study figures and facial expressions, and will draw and animate their characters!
Ages 8-12 at the Nepean Visual Arts Centre.
Your kids will get hands-on and sculpt their own creation!
Want to try an activity together? Check out the Parent and Teen pottery wheel class at the Nepean Visual Arts Centre! This is for your child aged 11-14 and you!
Ages 6-8. Enjoy learning to draw, paint and a variety of other art techniques. This would be a great way for your child to try a little bit of everything!
Ages 4-6. Through storytelling, dance and music, children will learn to work together, speak on stage and more. At the Nepean Creative Arts Centre
Children aged 7-12 can try their hand at improv, acting, drama and more on stage at the Nepean Creative Arts Centre.
Using green screen and other digital technologies, kids aged 11-14 can produce a short film and learn about the behind the scenes movie tricks that help bring their favourite films to life.
Don’t these sound like fun? There are various days of the week and times when these classes are being offered but I love how original and unique they are.
No matter what your choose, I hope your child has fun!
