What's available? Our programs and resources

School programs

AGA school programs support the goals of the 21st Century Skills Framework such as critical thinking, problem identification and solving and innovation. They provide support to all areas of the Alberta Education Programs of Study, not only art education. 

Build your program by choosing from exhibition visits, studio programs or a combination of the two. Or, experience a more immersive, multi-day art apprenticeship program.

School programs are available in English, French or Spanish.
