Art Program at the Art Gallery of Burlington

The Elementary Group is excited to offer a series of FREE art classes to our children aged 4-14. There will be 4 two-hour sessions held; each session will start with a 30 minute tour of the building and current exhibitions, followed by 1.5hrs of hands-on activity.

Each session will have your child working with a different medium - clay, painting, and monoprinting. Please see the attached flyer for more details.

PLEASE NOTE: All skill levels are welcome! You and your child do not have to be artistically inclined to participate!

The sessions will be facilitated by Art Therapist Becky Hewis and an artist educator both contracted by the AGB.

The first two dates are scheduled for Saturday May 30th, and Saturday June 27th from 2-4pm. The remaining two sessions will be held in the fall, tentatively booked for September 19th and October 24th.

If you are interested in your child participating in this series, please RSVPto Laurie Mendoza ASAP. We are asking you to try to commit to all 4 sessions at this time, as is reasonably possible given the time frame.

When RSVP'ing, please indicate if you plan to participate with your child, if you require a volunteer to attend with your child, or if you feel your child would be independent enough to attend by themselves. 

The AGB also requests a photography permission form be completed that will allow them to photograph the sessions for use when they request sponsorship for programs. Please fill this out and bring it with you to your child's first session on May 30th.

The AGB is located in southwest Burlington at 1333 Lakeshore Rd, Burlington, ON L7S 1A9.  It is directly across the street from the wonderful Spencer Smith Park. Please note: You will receive a complimentary parking pass for the AGB for use during your child's session.

Please RSVP to or contact Laurie Mendoza with any questions.
