Teacher & School Programs at the AGA connect students to artwork through a variety of engaging access points. Using a constructivist approach to art education, School & Teacher Programs make connections between students, the community and art in all of its forms in a variety of interesting and meaningful ways. Programs offer exhibition explorations, studio projects in the Singhmar Centre for Art Education or a combination of the two.
Programs focus on visual literacy, experimentation, collaboration, problem solving, innovation and interaction.
