Courses for Children and Youth

The AGO offers an environment that is creative, non-competitive and open-ended, allowing young artists (ages 2-18) the freedom to explore their potential and nurture their self-esteem. New skills and concepts are presented with an engaging and contemporary approach. These courses are enriched by regular visits to the AGO Collection and special exhibition galleries, providing an incredible opportunity for learning and creativity.

Check out our one day workshops and even more family fun programming at the AGO.
