Children & Youth

The Beaverbrook Art Gallery is pleased to  offer exciting  programs for children and youth where participants engage in discussions, activities and discoveries  inspired by the art in our permanent collection and temporary exhibitions.   Our programs are taught by experienced teachers and artists.

Teens & Adults

Our teen and adult programs  offer artists of all levels the opportunity to create, share,   and enjoy art in a casual, friendly atmosphere.  Participants are encouraged to explore their creative potential  and to get comfortable with new techniques and media.   Materials are included with most classes.

Outreach & Education

After School Program

Note: We currently have a few seats open for the current school year -  register today! Please contact us for more information.

The objective of the Beaverbrook Art Gallery Afterschool Art Program is to meet both the appropriate developmental needs (physical, social, intellectual, creative and emotional) and the individual needs and interests of each child in attendance with the province’s operating standards and legislation for all licensed centres.

Our Afterschool Art Program combines art, reading, drama, music and creative writing activities for children. Participants in this program will enjoy:

  • Improving self-awareness, confidence and feeling of self-worth; 
  • Using works of art as starting points for discussions and as an inspiration for their own art; 
  • Storytelling, role-playing, music and creating their own art; 
  • Building verbal and visual communication skills; 
  • Learning more about art, history and the world we live in; 
  • Building a lifetime relationship with the arts and an interest in reading and writing while also having fun and making friends. 

Our hours of operation are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 2:00PM to 5:30PM, and Wednesdays from 12:00 NOON to 5:30PM.
Our Program starts the first day after Labor Day and ends on the last day of school in June. After that time, children may join our full-day art camp, Artistica.
On Professional Development Days (PD days) for School District 18, District 1, storm days, and during school breaks, program days are from 8:00 AM to 5:30 PM.
