March Break Programs & Activities

Drop-in for the afternoon Sketching in the Gallery program facilitated by a local artist on March 16 & 17, 2016. No registration required nor experience in drawing. All materials are supplied. This is a wonderful opportunity to explore art in a different way!

The March Break Family Sunday is always a favourite event. It is a great way for all ages to spend a creative afternoon.

Join a daily Gallery tour at 2:30 and Thursday evenings at 7:30, with a well-trained gallery guide who will engage the group in an interactive exploration of the Gallery.
