These informal learning workshops focus on making connections between theory and practice in a fun and social environment. Each session features a new concept, gallery explorations and several hands-on art projects in the Singhmar Centre for Art Education. The aim of these workshops is to provide practical, hands-on projects AND inspire ideas that can be used in the classroom. Workshop themes focus on visual art concepts that can be used for all ages and can also be applied to other areas of the Programs of Study.

In this edition of Teacher Talks, we investigate strategies for increased technology usage in teaching languages. Our focus will link language learning to context and explore how technology can help to facilitate those experiences. In the Gallery, we will engage with a typical cultural experience such as “looking at art” while engaging with technology in the form of video journaling, to in turn activate the learning space.
Connect to your AGA with resources that can be used in the classroom prior to your program or on their own. These classroom resources provide jumping off points for discussions and projects that can be used with multiple age levels and several areas of the Programs of Study.
