The Contemporary Art Gallery offers engaging arts programs for students from K-12. Led by experienced art educators, participants explore CAG exhibitions through guided observation, facilitated discussion and studio art-making. Utilizing inquiry-based learning strategies, students and teachers are encouraged to creatively experiment with visual art materials and processes as well as critically reflect upon the power of contemporary art to engage with diverse themes, perspectives, and complex ideas. 

School programs are offered for grades K-12. There are two options –a one-hour interactive tour of the exhibitions at a cost of $50.00 or a two-hour tour that includes art-making related to the exhibitions for $90.00. Class size is typically capped at 30 students due to the size of the galleries.

Guided visits introduce major themes in contemporary art while making connections to the wider school curriculum from visual and language arts to science and math. To book a guided visit for your class, contact Danielle Green at learning@contemporaryartgallery.ca or 604 681 2700.

Our award-winning curriculum engages and stimulates students to connect the history of a young German immigrant family in Vancouver (between1880s-1920s) to their own and to reflect on immigration and social and cultural differences. The visit is split into 3 parts: architectural drawing (house and neighborhood), a tour of the house (during which children learn about the history of a family and of the city of Vancouver), and the discovery of unusual historical artifacts. This curriculum is particularly geared towards Grade 5 students, but can be easily adapted or used for other grades.
