Artists for Kids

​​​​The Artist for Kids and Gordon Smith Gallery together with The Gordon and Marion Smith Foundation for Young Artist​ offers public panel discussions, curatorial & artists talks, workshops, performances, and docent-led exhibition tours. ​Essential to all of our exhibitions is our unique approach to cultural programming. We provide spaces for contemporary Canadian art to engage, amaze and inspire our communities.  We develop and deliver exceptional programming for all our major exhibitions to connect our audience with the art, in a truly interdisciplinary way.​​
