About

The Brampton Arts Organization (BAO) and the Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) are teaming up for a very special Culture Days experience.

First, we'll be treated to a special tour of PAMA's exhibition Yours to Discover: Sights/Sites of Peel Region. Then we'll take our inspiration on the road for a sketching tour en plein air of downtown Brampton. French for "in the open air," the term refers to creating art outside, in response to what we see and feel.

We can hardly wait to see what you create!

Please note the second half of this workshop will take place outdoors around various locations in the downtown core of Brampton. This workshop will take place rain or shine unless severe weather is in the forecast. Suitable clothing for the weather is strongly advised.

Registration is FREE. If you require assistance, please contact us at [email protected]

Accessibility: If you require assistance or support to participate, please get in touch with us at [email protected] as soon as possible (minimum of three days in advance) so that we can make the necessary accommodations.

Transportation: The Brampton Arts Organization can provide all-ages Brampton Transit Tickets free of charge to those who need them for our in-person events. If you would like to pick up a ticket for yourself and others attending with you, please email [email protected] prior to the event and we will have them available for you onsite. Tickets work for both Brampton Transit and Züm buses.
