KWAG 2 GO Education Kits | 2022-23

Book an art lesson kit for your classroom inspired by works in our Permanent Collection

 

Art from our Permanent Collection inspires students to create their own masterpieces using techniques from a diverse range of artists. This customized education kit is designed to be delivered by the teacher at their own pace to suit their classroom’s unique needs.  

Bookable single-lesson kits are available for $150 for a one-week period and include individual material packets for students, lesson plans and resource guides for teachers. 

Education Kits are available for Kindergarten – Intermediate. Content for each lesson corresponds to division-specific curriculum.
