Art with Kids and Kid-Art with Adults

Mary Bennett, Joanne Brown and Jackie Conradi-Robertson

All three of this month’s artists also have experience with early-childhood art education. They will share what they know about doing art with kids. And how adults can learn to do art like kids do.

Mary Bennett will unveil preliminary plans for a Kids Takeover UCV Arts Festival inspired by UBC and Britain.

Come and give your input and help us find out what kids want in an arts festival or send ideas to

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up. – Pablo Picasso 

Come and meet Joanne Brown, Jackie Conradi-Robertson and Mary Bennett. All three are members of Artists in Our Midst and have art hanging this month in the sanctuary and Fireside Room.

Jackie Conradi-Robertson, Joanne Brown and Mary Bennett have a group show at the Unitarian Centre March 1 – April 30. Their theme is approached in a variety of ways. Joanne Brown, printmaker, will show her Four Elements series. Jackie Conradi-Robertson’s acrylic paintings are inspired by nature scenes either here at home or in her travels around the world. Mary Bennett’s mixed-media pieces explore materiality through colour, texture and layers.
All three are members of Artists in Our Midst, the West of Main Art Walk.

Mary Bennett coordinates a monthly Arts and Culture forum. Suggestions for speakers welcome.
