KWAG 2 GO: Three Part Program

Our three-part program consists of two in-school sessions and one Tour and Studio Workshop at the Gallery. During the pre-visit in your classroom students practice careful observation, learn about interpreting a work of art, and create their own artwork using what they learned as inspiration. 

The Tour and Studio Workshop encourages students to practice their observation skills in the Gallery and includes a one hour hands-on art making experience in our studio. This is followed by a post-visit consolidation lesson in your classroom and a final art making activity to extend their learning into new realms.

$14 + HST per student / 15 participant minimum / 30 participant maximum
