Children and Families

The AGO welcomes families with open arms. If you want to get more involved, there are Family Sundays sessions for all ages every Sunday (no booking required) throughout the fall and winter seasons, as well as a programme of Family Day, March Break and activities during the holidays. Kids can flex their drawing, painting, art sleuthing and game play in the galleries at the Art Cart on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, wee ones can explore and create in the Hands-On Centre Tuesdays through Sundays, or you can book yourselves onto one of the many year-round courses including Toddler Arts; Side by Side; Drawing, Painting & Mixed Media; Life Drawing and more (age restrictions apply). Adult courses are also available. With an awe-inspiring art and book shop, a superbly spacious family-friendly café, and a newly designed park and lush tree garden at the rear, it’s a great space to meet friends for a cuppa or a lazy lunch, giving you all the freedom to pop upstairs or downstairs and enjoy the exhibitions and creativity spots at your leisure.
