The art of our time is full of surprises, with artists often using non-traditional materials and techniques to explore a world of ideas. Students will be introduced to one of Oakville Galleries' exhibitions and then guided through a group discussion interpreting the artwork on display by one of our educators. With a focus on building communication and critical thinking skills, this program encourages students to engage their imaginations while expanding their understanding of the visual arts. While on site, schools shouldn't miss the chance to venture out into Gairloch Gardens to discover the sculptural works installed throughout the park.
