"Pop Goes the Easel!" is back for another season! 

Pop Goes the Easel!

 A collaboration between Symphony Nova Scotia, Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, and Long and McQuad e Musical Instruments 

 

 This fun and interactive program is back for a third season. The collaboration between the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Symphony Nova Scotia and Long and McQuade Musical Instruments was very well received during the first two seasons. Bring the whole family to this hands-on arts exploration! Again this year, “Pop Goes the Easel!” takes the Art Gallery’s hit “Family Sundays” program and gives it a musical twist. Each session features a live, interactive performance from Symphony Nova Scotia musicians.

Following the performance, participants will have a chance to express their creativity by making music in Long & McQuade's Musical Instrument "Fun Zone", and by creating an original art piece in an artist-led Art Gallery workshop!

With the exception of the session on September 29 (Culture Days), gallery admission fees will apply.
