School Programs


The AGB is dedicated to freeing minds and feeding spirits.

Access to professional arts studios, thought-provoking contemporary exhibitions, and the talented team of artist-educators make the Art Gallery of Burlington an ideal place to experience arts education outside of the classroom.

The Art Gallery of Burlington is Burlington’s public art gallery and community art centre, and holds the largest collection of contemporary Canadian ceramics.
