Enrich your students' education with hands-on visual arts workshops taught by professional arts educators. As one of Canada's foremost contemporary art museums, Oakville Galleries offers innovative field trips and in-class visits that make the visual arts accessible and engaging for your students. With a commitment to fostering creativity, confidence and critical thinking skills in children and youth, our programs give students opportunities to look at, discuss and make works of art in a space where they are encouraged to experiment with new ideas and specialized materials. All programs are designed to promote inquiry-based learning, supporting the development of students' collaborative and innovative learning abilities while emphasizing big ideas and interdisciplinary engagement.
