The weather is kind of “eh….” and the Christmas season hasn’t quite kicked into high gear yet.  It’s the perfect weekend to find a fun indoor activity for your family.  If your children are interested in artistic and creative opportunities, you will want to hop on the bus, SkyTrain or Sea Bus and head on down to the Vancouver Art Gallery this weekend for the thrice yearly FUSE Family Weekend.

Just like the popular Friday night FUSE events for the grown-up set, this is the ideal opportunity for children to explore the art gallery free and take part in carefully planned multi-media activities.  (Children under 12 are admitted for free.)

Family FUSE Weekend – The Everyday. The theme this month focuses on our sense of time, daily routines and familiar objects.  Children will have the opportunity to learn more about and explore small and large aspects of their everyday lives.  There will be films, workshops and commissioned performances throughout the gallery.  This will be a unique and memorable experience that your children are bound to enjoy.  For a break head up to the gallery cafe for a delicious assortment of entrees and desserts.  Don’t forget to check out the children’s section in the well stocked gallery store for specially sourced art related items.
