March – Scratching and Sampling
Basquiat. All kinds of things inspired Basquiat. He believed everything was connected and absorbed everything around him to make symbol-laden art, focusing on social issues, music, racism and African American heroes. Join us for family sundays that celebrate his art in the most innovative of ways.

April – Yarn Bombing and Knitting and More!
Where street art meets yarn. We're yarn bombing, or creating "knitting graffitti" as it is called. Explore the brand new old world of textiles through weaving, arm knitting, chocheting, wrapping and stringing galore. It all starts with a little bit of yarn!

May – From the Forest to the Sea
Emily Carr. Looking way down from the treetops all the way to the sea...Exploring the art of Emily Carr and the indigenous peoples connections to the land and sea.


In addition to fun in the Dr. Mariano Elia Hands-On Centre, families can:

  • Pick up a Kids Activity Bag (while quantities last)
  • Explore the Galleries
  • Visit the Kids Gallery interactive exhibition "Pets & Me"
  • Play in the Dr Mariana Elia Hands-On Centre
  • Eat at FRANK or the kid-friendly Café
  • Shop at shopAGOkids

and so much more!
