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.
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 and Summer Camps run weekly in July & August.
The Leighton's home was built by A.C. Leighton, a prominent artist, in the 1950s and during the 1970s Barbara Leighton opened the centre in the for local communities to explore art and craft in a rural setting. Since then, we have been offering a beautiful space that connects visitors to art, history, and the landscape.
