Family Day at PdA

Family Day at PdA Banner Image

When you hear the names Michelangelo, Leonardo and Raphael do you automatically think, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?

Does the thought of touring an art gallery leave you cold?

Do you think to create art you have to be an “artist?”

Place des Arts wants to blow the dust off those notions and shed light on the world of fine art!

Family Day at PdA is designed to actively engage families in learning about art in a fun, interactive and informal environment. Each family day offers a chance to view our current exhibitions and take part in several all-ages, drop-in style workshops based on the subject matter and mediums used by the artists.
