Looking for something a little more playful than a traditional tour? We also offer art-themed scavenger hunts! Students will be given a set of clues to engage them with the artworks on view, and collect their findings by writing down answers, making drawings and acting out skits. This popular program is a terrific way to engage students with the elements and principles of design, while having some fun with museum etiquette.

Programs are available weekdays throughout the academic year. Oakville Galleries can regularly accommodate bookings for two groups or a total of 60 students at once—three groups of up to 85 students can be booked with advance notice. Early booking is encouraged. There is a minimum registration of 25 students per group (or the equivalent registration fee) to secure a registration for your school.
To book a program, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 905.844.4402 x26. Programs should be booked at least three weeks in advance. To request a booking, teachers should include the total expected number of students, grade level(s), school name, school address, program title, and three preferred dates for the program.
Once booked, you will receive a confirmation form for your booking outlining the number of groups and estimated fees, along with a field trip kit and a map of where to find us.
Schools are required to provide one adult supervisor (teacher or parent volunteer) for every 10 children. There are no fees for adults to participate.
