Poster Art - Invitations to Play  

Art organizations often create posters to announce programs and gather community. These posters are invitations to participate. Sometimes the posters are printed on paper, sometimes they are posted on the internet.  

We will be creating paper posters to promote an imaginary community art project. Pretend you are an arts organizer. What kind of event would you like to plan? Where would it take place? 

Each participant will use a simple transfer method to create 2 paper posters to promote their imaginary event, one to take home and one to add to our poster wall.

Materials provided.


About Kids Creativity Club 

Kids Creativity Club is a Saturday morning art program at the Tett Centre where children and their families can experience the arts together. Each week, participants can enjoy a variety of hands-on, creative arts activities with local artists and volunteers. The program generally caters to children aged 10 and under, but all are welcome. Come and explore, create, and be inspired at the Tett! 

There is no fee for this program, but $5 donations are encouraged to support our charitable arts organization in providing art supplies and instruction for Kids Creativity Club and other community programs. 


About Creating Communities Through Art

Creating Communities Through Art is a collaborative research project and exhibition co-presented by Union Gallery and the Tett. Creating Communities Through Art grew out of conversations with local organizations, collectives, and artists who expressed a passion for creativity and a desire for community. For many of these individuals and groups, art was a catalyst for building a creative community that was missing from their lives. Beginning from these perspectives, this exhibition looks at the ways that art making facilitates critical connection. Through archival research and oral histories, Creating Communities Through Art starts to map the teaching and learning that takes place across Katarokwi-Kingston’s creative communities. 

This research project is generously funded by the Mitacs Accelerate Fellowship and co-presented by Union Gallery and the Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning.   Parallel exhibitions on-view at Union Gallery and the Tett Centre from August 9–September 17, 2022. Curated by Tia Bankosky, Drew Burton, Prerana Das, Anna Douglas, Peggy Fussell, Jung-Ah Kim, and Jessa Laframboise. For more details, visit Union Gallery’s website:
