Free After Three
The AGO’s Free After Three programming is the place to be for youth ages 14 to 25. Since September, the program has welcomed more than 400 youth after school through daily art-based workshops in the Weston Family Learning Centre. Youth can participate in graffiti/aerosol art-making, skateboard building, stop-motion animation and break-dancing workshops. And there are ping pong tables out in the Commons every Friday!
