Painted Birch Bark Canoes Family Art Activity


Fostering creativity is a significant part of the Algonquin Art Centre, and we achieve this by organizing a number of art classes, art demos, and family art activities to encourage our visitors to discover the artist within. The Algonquin Art Centre offers something for everyone.

Our beautiful surroundings provide much inspiration and subject matter for visitors to try their own hand at art, and we offer a number of daily art activities for families and visitors to experience nature through art. Whether you need a break from the campsite, shelter from rain, or just need a fun way to spend a morning or afternoon, the Algonquin Art Centre is the perfect place to get away. So come, grab a coffee, a cold drink, or snack, and enjoy one of the many activities we have to offer.

Our activities are easily adapted to all skill levels from the novice to the expert. If you are traveling to Algonquin Park on vacation, you need not worry about bringing any art tools or supplies. We provide everything you will need.

Instructed art classes present the opportunity to unleash your inner artist. We have classes for children, for adults, and classes for the whole family; among our most popular are painting using acrylic, watercolour, handcarded wool, ink, tracking art through nature and many other creative combinations.
