Whistler Children’s Festival – Imagination Unplugged

This year as part of the Whistler Children’s Festival we will be featuring the artwork from kids who participated in Andrea’s Imagination Station workshops in The Gallery at the Maury Young Arts Centre.

But we want more creations from young Sea to Sky artists, 12 years and younger! These artworks will be included in the exhibit in a mosaic display.

Paint, draw, or make a collage – whatever inspires you! A favourite animal? A rocket ship? An abstract creation? Anything goes!

Any medium or subject matter will be accepted, BUT all artwork must be 8” x 10” or smaller completed on paper or cardstock. We can only accept one piece per community artist, and your masterpiece will be included in a mosaic display in our Gallery. 3D works that cannot hang on the wall will not be accepted.
