Toronto, ON



Offered in English.


Get creative with this at home activity by Ontario Culture Days' Creative in Residence Amanda Lederle, then submit a scan or photograph of your work for a chance to win a FUJIFILM Instax® Mini 11.

Creating small icons to represent our experiences allows us to quickly grasp the feelings and capture the moment.

In this activity you will get to learn the basic building blocks of illustrating anything using basic shapes to create drawings or ‘stickers’ to represent a day in the life or emotions from an event to add to your journal or use have as a keepsake.

Adding illustrations of memories, feelings and text can enhance the memories of the experience.
