Audain Art Museum

Our Trips

There are many ways to see the natural environment around us. In this program students will explore strategies for looking at and responding to a variety of non-representational artworks housed in the Museum. By looking, thinking, discussing and creating works of abstract art students will be introduced to new ways of looking at and approaching subject matter. Using a variety of different techniques such as drawing, collage, and mixed media, students will feel supported in the exploration of their own creativity.

Students will explore a variety of artworks including landscapes, abstracts, photography, carvings and installations by BC artists while thinking about how the principles of art and design are used to express stories and issues related to life in coastal British Columbia. Students will engage in meaning making through deep observation, critical thinking and dialogue in response to various works of art.


Students will explore how historic and contemporary BC First Nations artists have used their knowledge and respect of natural materials to create their incredible works of art. Through direct comparison and observation, students will discover the elements, materials and stories found within the expressive artworks and how they have transformed over time, while also having the opportunity to creatively express their own identity.
