Studio Sundays: In-person and Online

Studio Sundays, presented by Canada Life, are an opportunity for families to connect with the artworks shown or housed at the MacKenzie and the artists that created them with hands-on workshops that are suitable for every age.

We want to provide an opportunity for you to experience art in an interactive, fun environment, right in your own home.

Every week, we will share an activity online, with information on the artist, and a list of materials and instructions. Be sure to check back every Sunday for a featured activity.

Every 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month in person from 2 PM – 4 PM in the BMO Learning Centre we offer hands-on workshops for the entire family to spend time together, taking creative risks, using their imaginations, and having fun.

Share your creations on our social platforms using #studiosundayyqr and help us create an online studio!
