PROGRAMS FOR KIDS

When my girls were preschoolers, we loved taking in the daytime programs, like Tours for Tots, at the AGA! We also love attending the monthly All Day Sunday events which include art-making stations for families. The AGA also offers registered art classes for kids, camps, stroller tours and more!
