VISUAL ARTS CREATIVE LABS

Led by our talented and knowledgeable Education Faculty, your visit includes a tour of our current gallery exhibition and a hands-on art activity in our studios. Our Gallery Tours provide image-focused and inquiry-based experiences for K–12 students. We encourage students to look closely, share personal perspectives and build connections between their own lives and learning. Following your tour, head to the Studio, where students integrate these discoveries into their work of art. Creative Labs emphasize developing visual literacy, critical thinking and technical skills that support your classroom curriculum. We carefully tailor our programs to different age levels.

If you have a special request regarding visual arts workshops, please contact our Visual Arts Education Coordinator, Wendy Anderson at wendy@evergreenculturalcentre.ca to discuss further.
