Looking for family friendly drop-in activities over March break rather than camps? Head to the AGO for some colourful, cultural, artistic activities for the kids led by artists and thinkers.
The AGO has nine days of futuristic programming for the whole family inspired by their current blockbuster exhibition Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors and Kusama’s playful world of light and colour.
Kids will build collaboratively and transform cardboard boxes into a massive futuristic city coordinated by Toronto artist Sean Martindale. They can make a lantern or a silly Emoji face mask – which sounds very on point! They get to continue the fun by printing a kaleidoscope of coloured patterns, playing with shadows, and commemorating the day with a family photo in front of the interactive selfie wall.
March break activities are free with general admission, and visitors can save $10 off the cost of a family pass when they purchase tickets online in advance. AGO members always receive free admission.
