Open Studio is offered at no charge every Sunday afternoon from 1pm-4pm in our GWD Foundation for Kids Creative Hub. Our artist/instructors offer ideas as sources of inspiration and facilitate hands-on activities to encourage visitors to engage with art and craft making. These programs are offered throughout the year for individuals and families who are visiting the gallery to inspire them to get creative. We are dedicated to providing a well-rounded arts program that balances art appreciation with art creation to ensure maximum benefits.

The Open Studio – Free Family Sundays program launched in 2014 as a way to open up the gallery to our community, and has grown from biweekly to weekly programming. Originally sponsored solely by Danyliw & Mann, TD now joins them as a contributing sponsor, helping us work towards our goal of total funding for the program.

2015 saw over 1,000 visitors to our Open Studio – Free Family Sundays program, a number that can only grow with this important contribution from TD. “We are super excited to be supporting Free Family Sundays at the Art Gallery of Burlington,” said Michael Borrelli, Branch Manager at TD Canada Trust. “This very much aligns with our commitment to community involvement.”
