Exploring Art tours are designed for teachers and daycares in search of a multidisciplinary learning experience in a contemporary public art gallery.
Explore our current and upcoming art exhibits at the Art Gallery of St. Albert!
The Gallery offers a multi-faceted approach to art education that promotes deeper learning and offers multiple perspectives for students to see and interpret the world around them. The Exploring Art program instils artistic behaviour and encourages students to develop their own creative capacities for learning, while accessing other types of knowledge and methods of creative problem solving.
Exploring Art students are invited to:
- Explore art through relevant, engaging and thought provoking themes such as Space and Place, Material and Process and Art and Society
- Connect to an artists’ work through the sharing of stories, experiences and emotions
- Discover cultural, historical and social contexts of the artworks on display
We can’t wait to meet you and your students. We welcome the opportunity to tailor each special visit according to student age, grade and curriculum focus.
