Enable your students to experience the expressive potential of art, either in the classroom or at Oakville Galleries. All of Oakville Galleries' elementary school programs are readily adaptable for special needs students, with accommodations and adaptations developed in consultation with the booking teacher. Alternately, teachers are welcome to discuss options for a unique project or series of workshops with our instructors. Programs are custom-designed to suit your group's needs and interests. Our Education Centre is fully accessible and we supply all materials.
