Family Day at PdA Banner Image

At Place des Arts, art is a family affair!

Doing or experiencing art together as a family is a great bonding experience that can inspire deeper communication, get our  imaginations imagining and provide lots of stimulating, creative fun!

Family Day at PdA

For our 2018/2019 season, four Family Days at PdA will get the whole family immersed in art! Tour the galleries and create your own masterpieces in a variety of drop-in-style art activities based on the subject matter and/or art mediums of the exhibiting artists.

    Every child is an artist.  The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.
