Side by Side (4-7 yrs)
We offer parents, grandparents or caregivers the chance to discover art through a playful and fun process, side by side with their young artist. Participants will be introduced to a wide range of art materials and art making processes through painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking and mixed media. Interactive gallery visits incorporate play and learning. Some projects will be individual and some will be shared…it’s all about making connections, being together and loving art!
AGO Children and Family Programs offer an environment that is creative, non-competitive and open-ended, allowing young artists the freedom to explore their own potential and nurture their self-esteem, while building a strong repertoire of techniques and skills. These courses are enriched by regular visits to the galleries and collections of the AGO, providing an exceptional opportunity for learning and creativity.
The philosophy of children’s art classes at the AGO is inquiry-based and focuses on an exploration of the creative process. We take a multi-media approach that allows for a diversity of art-making processes, techniques and materials. This may at times be a less traditional approach than you may expect, with skills and concepts sometimes delivered and taught through engaging, contemporary projects.
All materials are included. Meet in the Weston Family Learning Centre Gallery School.
ATTENTION: No class on Saturday May 19 and Sunday May 20.
