You and your family are invited to spring into art this April Break! Join in the fun with five days of free, live virtual programming courtesy of the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Canadian Opera Company and Vancouver Art Gallery. Mix artmaking with fun performances and revealing behind-the-scenes tours.

Families with kids of all ages are invited to log-on daily from 2 to 5 pm EST, April 12 through 16, for this cross-country arts break. No registration is needed and sessions will be livestreamed here on

This week of virtual spring break programs will consider the many ways we can express our ideas, identities and stories using real, imagined and dream-worthy themes like Underwater, Underground, Playspace, Outerspace and Intergalactic. Each session is by a specialist artist and/or trained educator who are inspired by marvelous artworks, and who will offer imaginative activities that you can make from home.

Watch for simple material lists for each program, or simply follow along with what you have on hand. These programs are fun for all ages - they combine artmaking with thinking about art in a safe space. You can always ask questions and share your own masterpieces using #SpringIntoArt.

Our daily programs include programming from
2 − 3:15 pm - Art Gallery of Ontario
3:15 − 4 pm - Canadian Opera Company
4 − 5 pm - Vancouver Art Gallery
