Alberta Culture Days at the Art Gallery of Alberta

Join us at the AGA for a two-day family-friendly celebration of arts and culture at the Art Gallery of Alberta. On September 25th, and September 26th from 11am to 5pm we will be transforming the main floor into a kaleidoscope of colour with free art activities hosted by local artists, and our education team. With a lot of great ways to express your creativity and a giant community colouring project make sure to join us to celebrate Alberta’s lively art community.

On top of daily art activities hosted by our education team we have special programs planned throughout the weekend!

On Saturday join us for a portrait drawing activity hosted by emerging artist Braxton Santiago-Garneau from 12-3pm.

On Sunday local artist Yong Fei Guan will teach you how to transform plastic waste into a colourful lantern that you can take home from 12-3pm.

We hope you will join us at the AGA for our two days of celebration. We are inspired by our recently opened exhibition ROYGBIV, which is a maximalist tribute to colour. All activities on the main floor of the gallery of FREE and open to the public, if you would like to see the rest of the gallery we are offering a reduced admission cost of only $5 this weekend only, brought to you by our sustaining partner Capital Power.

Please note: The Intro to Breaking and Beat Making workshops with Creeasian have been postponed to a later date. Stay tuned for more details.
