Now in its 35th year, the Gala of Gifts is one of the region's favourite holiday traditions. This popular fine art and craft sale features unique, handmade gifts by local makers. The Gala of Gifts is an important fundraising event for the AGSM, including a raffle, live entertainment, and more!


Free Santa's Workshop for Children

The Children’s Studio will be transformed into a free “Santa’s Workshop” on November 25! Parents can shop for the holidays at the Gala of Gifts, while kids can drop in to the art studio between 10:30am and 4:30pm to make a variety of magical holiday gifts and ornaments with our AGSM Art Instructors and Volunteers!

Kids can celebrate the holiday season in the cozy atmosphere of the Children’s Studio with hot chocolate, popcorn, music, Christmas movies, and one of a kind projects which help kids develop their painting, building, drawing, and crafting skills!
