Studio Sundays: Now Weekly


It’s an art party! Weekly Studio Sundays at the MacKenzie, presented by Canada Life, is an opportunity for individuals and families to drop in and create artwork.

Learn about the artists and artworks in the MacKenzie’s Permanent Collection and featured exhibitions, with weekly in person hands-on workshops that can be modified for all ages. Visit our studio to make art with Gallery Educators and guest artists, exploring both new and beloved techniques and art materials.

Sundays in the Learning Centre from 1 to 3 PM.

There is no cost to attend these drop-in sessions. All materials are provided.
