We’re joining the PA Day fun at the St. Catharines Public Library, Central Library Branch! Kids can try their hand at the art of stenciling during this drop-in craft activity held in the Library atrium.

Families will learn about this historic-approach to home decoration while creating their own stenciling masterpiece using stencils based off of designs found on the walls of The Brown Homestead, built in 1802.

Children will receive a canvas bag and, with the guidance of TBH staff, use acrylic paint with provided stencils to create their artwork. Families can leave their pieces to dry while taking part in the other art-based activities held at the Library.

Visit Culture Days for more information.


The Brown Homestead

The Brown Homestead was founded in 2015 to preserve and maintain significant heritage buildings and sites.

We believe that historic sites reach their full potential when they are vibrant community spaces that nurture a growing passion for learning. The Brown Homestead is a model of how historic sites can become creative educational leaders and community catalysts, helping to redefine educational paradigms for a changing world.

We are working to ensure that historic site management becomes an integral part of community planning and development.
