My daughter was enrolled in some other art classes but none compared to this one. She was always so excited to go to class and happy after each one.
With a unique combination of spectacular grounds overlooking the Humber River Valley and a world-famous art collection, the McMichael provides an unmatched backdrop for children, youth and family programs.

The McMichael facility is as much of a national treasure as the art that it houses. You really can’t praise it enough—it’s truly a jewel in the crown of Canadian arts. In addition to year round programs, the summer sessions, in particular, unabashedly get kids involved up to their elbows in art, from creation to appreciation. The sessions are active, though created to really promote the work and the collections to kids on their level, inspiring them to better appreciate their talents as well as the talents of those around them. The experience of being at the collection, too, creates a sense of ownership for the works collected there. The gallery intentionally blurs the line between art and environment, and the camps seek to extend that, getting kids out into the world, and to see how that world is reflected in the work of some of the country’s greatest artists. These camps are not just art classes or art appreciation workshops, they are vibrant, well-led programs allowing kids to have fun while interacting with others around the arts.
THE SAFETY AND HEALTH OF OUR STUDENTS AND STAFF REMAIN OUR TOP PRIORITY We have implemented a number of new measures to ensure the health and safety of every student enrolled in our Saturdays at the McMichael classes. Children will be seated at separate tables. Each child will be provided with a personal art kit which will be stored in the studio and not shared with other students. Our staff have created seating arrangements to allow students to sit at least 2 metres away from other participants. During the program, art instructors will ensure that all students practice social distancing measures. Students and staff are required to wear face masks at all times in accordance with York Region public health guidelines, and each learning space will be equipped with hand sanitation stations and a sink for thorough hand washing. We kindly request that all parents and guardians review social distancing practices with their child prior to the start of the session.View recent COVID-19 updates from McMichael Children and Youth Art Camps and Programs
