Group tours

Ottawa Art Gallery offers guided exhibition tours to groups of up to twenty-five visitors. Tours are an engaging learning experience animated by a knowledgeable gallery educator. Participants are encouraged to ask questions and actively discuss the artwork on display.


Enhance your team’s productivity, foster creativity with friends, or explore wellbeing through art.

Whether it’s a corporate event, conference, wedding party, or night out with a group of friends, ARTivities are sure to add to any event.


Join us every last Thursday of the month to learn observational sketching techniques from an educator at the Ottawa Art Gallery.

With summer plein air sessions and surprise guest artists, this program changes often and offers a range of learning opportunities and sketching settings.

Art materials will be provided. Spaces may be limited and registration will be required.
