Contemporary Art Gallery

Our Trips

“It truly was a meaningful experience for both the children and the teachers” - Montessori instructor on a guided visit.

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 – 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 wider school curriculum from visual and lanugage arts to science and math. To book a guided visit for your class, contact Danielle Green at or 604 681 2700.
