School Programs

Facilitated programs at art galleries have been shown to support the development of students’ creative and critical thinking capacities and affect students in four measurable ways:

QUESTIONING // Students ask more complex questions
MULTIPLE INTERPRETATIONS // Students are more accepting of multiple interpretations
PHYSICALITY OF ART // Students are more likely to think about art in terms of its material properties
EMOTIVE RECALL // Students experience greater emotive recall of the program

A new tour and workshop program is developed for each exhibition, making it possible for your class to visit at least four times each school year. All our school programs incorporate core competencies and learning standards from the new BC Curriculum and are accompanied by a Teacher’s Guide, which is also available online.
Customized tours and workshops are available and can be developed to explore topics and techniques that are particularly relevant to your group.
Homeschool and Alternative Learning Program rates are available for all school programs.
