Discover cool seaside art inspired by kids, and created by kids!

IMGP7126Rowing, paddling, biking or walking along Vancouver’s beautiful waterfront, ephemeral ‘KIDSART’ is sure to catch the eyes of the observant!

 

…Children at play, in, near, or on the ocean, children making art out of sea-things, building canals and sandcastles, playing imaginative ‘one-off’ sea-inspired games, or just being kids, while having a jolly good time feeling water and sand running between their toes.

Beyond these home-made experiences, frequent visits to wonderful places like Vancouver Maritime Museum, are sure to delight, enrich and educate the lives of children (all ages)!

Ships, sea creatures, pirate treasures, fun workshops with Museum educators, more ships and shipwrecks, children’s’ choirs singing, sea shanties, stories and videos, Arctic exploration stories with visitors, and more than you can imagine! So let’s get busy eating our way over to super MetroVan heritage venues and other fantastic coastal sites for children – from Chinatown to VMM!

– NEAR OR FAR FROM THE OCEAN, much of my own art and photo-works also feature children (mine and others) by-the-sea, in the mountains, out on the meadows, on city streets, playgrounds and schoolyards!  AND BEYOND, WHEREVER YOUR IMAGINATION TAKES YOU…………

Take a bigger ferry (seabus) across Burrard Inlet to visit beautiful Waterfront park North Vancouver. Climb up sculptures (mountain sized with mountain backdrops) that warn you 'don't climb' ... and you do if you're ten or so!

'Spring in BC CoastSwirls' creates an impression of March wind-swirls rushing through new branches and old, rushing Pacific sea foam, and blending colors of shore and sky!

'sea-to-sky rainbow' is art isn't it?

‘Sea-to-sky rainbows’  are nature’s artwork in a child’s favorite colors!   Where did Mr. mallard put his dinner?  ow many goslings are tucked under Mother goose’s wings?  (over 6) From the art of lost sandy coasts, to rainbow wishes, seaside-sculpture climbers and evening kayakers, or seashell searcher… children will find a way to make it a wonderful one-of-a-kind creation for all to share.

across from Vancouver, there are many more mini and bigger sections of oceanfron seawall, with all kinds of 'wild' and 'tame' life - these two were chatting and gesturing about some important waterfront events at Eagle Harbour.

Along the seawall, all kinds of ‘wild’ and ‘tame’ seaside critters. These two were chatting and gesturing about some important waterfront events.
