Tiny Art Adventures

Preschool - Grade 1
Search, move, play and discover in this interactive Gallery visit. Tiny Art Adventures introduces young students to art and the museum through a variety of interactive, multi-sensory exercises. Join us in an exploration of line, shape, colour, texture, and the investigation of how artists use art to tell stories and send messages. With a focus on early literacy, environmental awareness, and creative expression.
