Plan Your Group’s Visit

GUIDED & SELF-GUIDED ART PROGRAMS

We are happy to assist you with the preparations of your group’s visit to our current and upcoming exhibitions and invite you to explore them through our guided, self-guided or art retreat programs. Tours are free of charge & 1.5 Hr Art Programs which include a hands-on take home art project are FREE of charge thanks to ATB Financial.

1.5 HRS ART PROGRAM – GUIDED TOUR

This program includes a facilitated tour with a take-home hands-on art project inspired by current exhibitions. Hands-on art projects emphasize a contemporary mixed-media approach. The projects are age-appropriate and based on the principles and elements of art and design. These experiential components allow for student’s own experience of the exhibitions to be enhanced and grounded.
