School Break at Pointe-à-Callière – Creative Workshops

March 1st to 7, 2021
For children of ages 6 and up
Presented as videos on the Museum’s Facebook page and YouTube channel

During school break, Pointe-à-Callière is presenting a series of six creative workshops you can follow at home, with the whole family, at the date and time of your choosing! The workshops will give you an opportunity to explore our exhibitions A Railroad to Dreams and Come Aboard! Pirates or Privateers? in creative ways!
The creative workshop videos will be posted here on this web page, as well as on the Museum’s Facebook page and YouTube channel, from Monday, March 1st to Sunday, March 7, with one workshop posted each day. We suggest taking one workshop per day or setting your own pace, as the content and videos will remain available the whole time.

Get out your finest crayons, some glue and scissors, and set off on an adventure!
