Ottawa Art Gallery invites you to a monthly creative Happy Hour. Enjoy a drink and a light snack and take part in a discussion about a preselected work of art. A knowledgeable gallery educator will then guide you through a hands-on exploration of techniques or themes connected to the work.

Art materials will be provided.

Note that starting in January 2019, Happy hour will be a ticketed event. The price of your ticket goes towards supporting and growing OAG’s community programs such as subsidized creative workshops for local service organizations like The Ottawa Mission and St-Joe’s Women’s Center.
