There are plenty of creative ways to share the love this Valentine’s Day. These artistic activities will help you stay inspired while you celebrate your loved ones!

Give the ones you love a new kind of bouquet this Valentine’s Day with some help from the Art Gallery of Burlington. Their online chromatography workshop will highlight the ins and outs of paper flower making, using materials you can find at home like coffee filters, water, and sticks!

Paint some hearts for your loved ones using the snow as your wintery canvas!  Thunder Bay’s Community Arts & Heritage Education Project (CAHEP) will be leading a virtual workshop, where participants will learn the art of painting the snow using cardboard stencils and Kool-Aid or Jello.
