The AGA welcomes over 20,000 students and teachers each year to explore connections between art, ideas and our lived experiences through a number of engaging & unique program offerings in the galleries and in the Singhmar Centre for Art Education. We offer in-person tours, in-person studio sessions and full day programs, as well as online experiences.
Taught by highly experienced and knowledgeable staff, school programs are booked as a singular program or combined for an in-depth look at art and its potential to transform our lives. Our programs touch on all aspects of the Alberta Program of Studies while expanding students’ multi-literacy capacity though the arts.
