Join an Ottawa Art Gallery Educator for a peek into the imagination and artwork of Canadian artist Russel Yuristy.

Yuristy’s inner world is one where bears can pilot submarines and kids co-create gigantic animal play structures. Learn about this man’s work and life. After the presentation, you’ll be led through a drawing workshop where you’ll create a self portrait of your own fantastic ‘getaway’ vehicle operated by an animal of your choosing. All you need to join is a curious mind and a pencil and piece of paper. Ages 9-12

Registrants will receive an additional email with the Zoom link ahead of the program. Click here for Summerland program FAQs.
