ArtBreak Camps at a Glance

Cultivate your creative talents with one of your AGA’s ArtBreak camps!

AGA ArtBreak Camps empower campers to take the lead in the creative process, discovering the world around them through art activities, imaginative exercises and projects related to specific themes. Focusing on student interactions and personal experiences, these camps build bridges between art, ideas, and our community. 

This spring, we are taking inspiration from Generations: The Sobey Family and Canadian Art, an exhibition featuring artwork from Canadian icons like Tom Thomson, Emily Carr, Jean Paul Riopelle, and contemporary mega-stars such as Peter Doig, Kent Monkman and Brian Jungen. Campers will investigate how art has changed over time and experiment with traditional materials in new and innovative ways. 

See upcoming camps below, or take a look at our calendar.
