Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday: Create a circus character!
Join your children in building a cardboard circus tent you can then use as your own little pocket theatre. After decorating it, you’ll create a circus character using crayons, scissors, and glue. Next, bring the character to life by imagining a circus act and presenting it under your little big top!
Thursday: Make your own phenakistoscope
A phenakistoscope is an optical toy that creates the illusion of movement. Working together as a family, build your own phenakistoscope decorated with a juggling clown, then bring the clown to life.
|Pointe-à-Callière’s lectures are being held in person again! For this first lecture complementing the It’s Circus Time exhibition, the Museum has invited specialist and author Pascal Jacob to take us back in time to the origins of the circus arts.|
