About

At the Leighton Art Centre you will find a beautiful escape from the hustle and bustle of Calgary in the foothills close to Millarville. The centre is now a Heritage Home and Museum as well as a Gallery for local artists and artisans. We believe in the value of art and the beauty of our landscape.


Services

We host a variety of art exhibitions, art events, and creative workshops instructed by local artists. Our school programs are taught in historical art studios on site or at your school and Summer Camps run weekly in July & August.

Both my boys did this camp last year and it is the first time I have seen such enthusiasm. They LOVED it. The camps were well run, with loads of outdoor time and the art projects they completed were way more advanced than I was expecting.

The bus from the city also made it super convenient. Best camp we have ever attended.
