Richmond Art Gallery

Our Trips

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 out our gallery videos page.

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 or to book a kit check out our gallery website.

The Richmond Art Gallery’s School Program introduces students of all ages to the exciting world of contemporary art through interactive gallery tours and hands-on art workshops.  Led by professional art educators, our curriculum-based programs encourage students to make personal connections with art while developing critical thinking skills and exploring diverse perspectives. For more information or to book a field trip visit our gallery website.

Free tours of our exhibitions are available for Grades 8 - 12. Learn about the artists, their works, and how we curate the exhibitions. Teachers' Guides are available on our website for each exhibition. Please book ahead of time to ensure availibility. Gallery-based activities can be arranged to integrate with your subject area.
