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.
