MacLaren at Community Festivals

The MacLaren is excited to take artmaking outdoors this summer at community festivals across our region. In anticipation of our upcoming Carnegie Days festival for Culture Days 2019, the MacLaren is excited to host Ex Libris, a free art activity where festival-goers will have the opportunity to create unique bookplates using drawing, stamping and illustration techniques. Inspired by historical visual examples and using templates available, participants will create an illustrated bookplate that they can then take home and insert into a storybook or novel—encouraging the sharing of their favourite book with others!

Where to find us this summer:

Celebrate Barre
Barrie Pow Wow
Nish-Stravaganza (Summer Solstice)
Take a Kid Fishing Day
The Barrie Fair
Dragon Boat Festival
Rama Pow-Wow
Barrie Public Library Comic-Con
