The Aurora Cultural Centre is excited to introduce ASAP, a free weekly after school art program for high-school-aged youth in Aurora, hosted in our temporary gallery at Aurora Town Hall (second floor). Running as part of the Mayor’s Celebration of Youth Arts 2024, ASAP runs every Thursday from February 22 – March 21, 2024, with drop-in hours between 4:30 – 6:30 pm.  Please note that parking and entry to this program is through the Upper/North entrance of Aurora Town Hall only.  

About the Program 

ASAP takes place in our temporary gallery and is scheduled after public hours, for the purpose of providing students with private, exclusive access to the space for their own creative exploration and development. A drop-in program, students may come and go at any point of the program hours.  

During ASAP, students may (but are not limited to):  

 work on art projects
 develop creative ideas
 establish their artistic portfolio
 meet other artistically drive peers
•  gain professional advice from our Gallery team 
 just hang out! 

In ASAP, there are no rubrics, guidelines, or expectations for participants. An optional, lightly guided art project will be available for students to follow, if desired. Light art materials and snacks provided; however, this program is B.Y.O.S. (Bring Your Own Sketchbook!).
