The Alberta Restriction Exemption Program (REP) is now in effect for the heritage home (gallery, museum, gallery shop) and workshops.


Family Friendly Programs

Kids love Leighton Art Centre… and we love kids! We periodically host art workshops that are suitable for – or specifically designed for – families with children, and most of our nature workshops can accommodate families, too. If your ‘kid’ is an older teen (already?!?), some of our Artist Workshops may be appropriate – each one lists its own age limitations/recommendations.

This page displays all upcoming workshops and programs that are suitable for families with children. Please check each event for age limitations/recommendations; some may not be able to accommodate very young children.

Please note: you may find fewer programs during the winter months.
