The School Art Program has moved online! We have produced art making videos and at-home lessons using easy to find materials and exploring art concepts and techniques.  Whether for classroom use, homeschool students, or family fun, these videos engage with contemporary art in a fun and accessible way. Join us today!

For all of the latest content and updates, check our RAG@Home Art Activities page.  For a quick start, check out one of the videos listed below.

For the Labour's trace gallery exhibition, the Richmond Art Gallery has created two free video art lessons that can be done at home or in the classroom.  Exhibition artists Amy Malbeuf and Karin Jones explore cultural and personal identity through their artwork, and the ways in which identity shapes our experiences of the world.

In the first video art lesson, students will be introduced to the history of Métis beadwork and the artwork of Métis artist Amy Malbeuf. A gallery educator then demonstrates the technique of pointillism and guides students to make an artwork inspired by beadwork traditions.

In the second video art lesson, students will be introduced to the artwork of Canadian artist Karin Jones, and hear her discuss the way she explores her African-Canadian identity through art-making. A gallery educator then demonstrates the technique of making wearable artwork through the technique of making paper beads.

A teacher guide for the Labour's trace gallery exhibition is available if you wish to expand on the lessons with classroom discussions and extension activities.
