Program Description

Can't visit the gallery? The School Art Program has created classroom art kits to bring the exciting world of contemporary art into the classroom or home classroom.  Each kit is a combination of online content plus specialty art supplies for each student.  The online content contains videos of our art educators guiding students step by step through 3-5 different art lessons which are all connected by the themes of our gallery exhibitions. Also included are virtual exhibition tours and video interviews with gallery artists and a teacher guide so students can learn about contemporary Canadian Artists and connect their work and experiences to the exhibition artworks.  For more information check out our website.
