Birthday Workshops at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts

Give your child an unforgettable birthday with a choice of three birthday workshops.

In the Mind of an Artist

What happens in the mind of an artist who is seeking new ideas? Following a delightful path among modern art works, children will discover this through activities that capture their imagination. Then they will go into a workshop to try the technique of Spin Art.

Young Creators

Dare to think like an artist while discovering the secrets of the art works in the Museum! Punctuated by short creative exercises in front of the art works then a workshop on easel painting, this tour will amuse children and stimulate their creativity!

Artistic Treasure Hunt

Following an ancient legend, this path leads children, through clues, to discover the treasures of the Museum. Then they go into a workshop to sculpt a clay model.
