Taught by professional artists and arts educators at our lakeside studios in Gairloch Gardens, Oakville Galleries' art classes and camps encourage children to explore the furthest reaches of their imaginations and maximize their creativity. Programs offer one-of-a-kind art making experiences, interactive tours of the Galleries' exhibitions, and outdoor recreation activities. Small classes guided by qualified art instructors ensure an inspiring setting for your children to express themselves through art.
