Family Fun

Learn and Make From Home

Discover art making and learning activities curated for young families that are inspired by artworks in our collection. Find the activity that suits your style and interest. Some are fun to do together at home or on one's own; others offer a means to enjoy colour and mark making at one's own skill level; and others will provide new insights into familiar and less familiar work themed to children and families. These are great activities to do before or after your visit to the AGO.
