STUDIO SUNDAYS AT THE MACKENZIE

Studio Sundays, presented by Great West Life, London Life, and Canada Life, offer hands-on art activities and family-friendly explorations of themes in our current exhibitions every Sunday from 2 - 4pm, led by a trained Gallery Facilitator in the BMO Learning Centre.

All ages are welcome. Free admission, no registration necessary.

The first Sunday of every month at the MacKenzie is Storytelling Sunday, where Gallery Facilitators read and tell stories related to works on view in the Gallery, followed by an exhibition-related art activity. Special Sundays throughout the year include guest artist-led workshops, musical performances and more in the galleries.
