Looking at art with all 5 senses

Art has the ability to engage all of your senses just by looking at it. This is a technique the St. Thomas-Elgin Public Art Centre using when giving tours to a younger audience, but it’s fun for anyone to try.





Clark McDougall Colouring pages...

Clark McDougall (1921-1980) was a St. Thomas, Ontario artist whose work reached critical acclaim before his untimely death in 1980. Survey exhibitions of this artist from St. Thomas were presented at the McIntosh Gallery, the University of Western Ontario in 2011, the St. Thomas-Elgin Public Art Centre and at The Elgin County Museum, St. Thomas. Clark McDougall’s paintings are highly regional in content with a strong emphasis in recording rural landscapes and the world around him. Clark McDougall’s works are in numerous public collections in Canada.  The St. Thomas-Elgin Public Art Centre has the largest collection of Clark's artwork.  We care for over 430 drawings and paintings by Clark McDougall.  In 2017, we featured many unseen works from the generous donation from the McDougall Group, in the exhibition, "the Relentless Pursuit...".  The following colouring sheets were produced as a colouring book to raise funds to care for the works in the permanent collection.
