RBCM@Home (Kids) Mural Making

Mural Making with Kay Gallivan

A year ago the Royal BC Museum's Learning Centre received a colourful new addition. A large scale mural was added to the main wall of the space, created in collaboration with a team of local artists, a local Songhees elder and a group of dedicated youth.

Kay Gallivan was the lead artist for the project, and this session will be a chance to learn about how it was created, and what it all means. And we'll even have a chance to envision what your mural would look like.

Materials needed:

  • Paper
  • Something to draw with (pencil, crayons, markers, etc.)

RBCM @ Home (Kids) is hosted by Chris O'Connor.

If you missed past sessions, check out our RBCM @ Home (Kids) YouTube page.

RBCM @ Home (Kids) is like a museum playdate online. Visit with members of the museum staff who are working from home, along with families from across BC, as we make and learn together. Each session will have some kind of making activity, so get your paper and pencil crayons ready. RBCM @ Home(Kids) takes place on Wednesdays at 11 am, visit our calendar for topics, presenters and a list of materials so you can join in with hands-on activities at home.

For adults and youth, check out RBCM @ Home. This program takes place on Tuesdays at 12pm and highlights members of the curatorial and collections staff who are working from home during the pandemic and discover how they do their work, how their work is reflected in their homes and what they're working on now.
