The Kids’ Gallery : Just Like Me: Explore, Imagine, Create
Come visit the Kids Gallery at the AGO, a space created especially for children and you. Together you can experience art first-hand, learn and have fun.
In this first exhibition of paintings and sculptures, you'll encounter children from faraway times and places. Some are outside and some are at home, spending time with their family, friends and pets. Has life really changed that much over the years?
Check out the works of art. Make a portrait. Explore the books. Relax and stay a while.
Exhibition-inspired costumes and props are available for visitors to design, dress up and pose for their own portraits. Families are encouraged to post their photographs on Instagram with the #AGOkidsgallery hashtag to see their portrait appear on a screen in the space. The Kids' Gallery activity centre also includes art books and a drawing station for budding artists inspired by the exhibited works.
Organized by the Art Gallery of Ontario
This exhibition is included with general admission.
