Share Your Story: The Story of "I" for Carnegie Days
The MacLaren Art Centre is excited to host three free workshops at the Gallery for children, youth and families to enjoy! At these workshops, participants will create vibrant illustrations inspired by illuminated manuscripts, depicting letters, words and initials that have meaning to them. 
 
Families will have the opportunity to submit their artwork for an online community exhibition, The Story of “I” as a featured part of Carnegie Days. This annual festival of art and language includes exhibitions, public art projects, lectures, readings, screenings, workshops and other public programmes at the Gallery and in the city of Barrie. Coinciding with Culture Days, Carnegie Days 2017 takes place from September 28 to  October 1, with free events for visitors of all ages presented by the MacLaren and by our many community partners. This year’s festival theme is translation: the translation of experience into expression as it shapes our sense of self.
