Children and family programs are in full swing! Parents and tots can expect to enjoy interactive and exploratory programs in arts, music, and heritage, while school-aged children can come to the museum for in-depth introductory classes in exciting art techniques and historical discovery. Whether you’re an experienced artist looking to meet new friends, or a beginner wanting to explore new mediums, the Langley Centennial Museum has something to offer. Be sure to check back regularly for updates and new programs!

Artful Families

Families get busy together with this weekly family art program!  Participants start with an exciting tour of one of our current exhibits, an outdoor heritage location, or a local interest, followed by a 90-minute arts or heritage workshop to create a work reflecting a special component of the exhibit.  Adults and children learn and create alongside one another, sharing learning and idea development.
