Classroom Art Kits
Can’t visit the gallery? Have the gallery come to you! We have designed these kits with simplicity in mind, to make incorporating art content into your classroom as easy as possible. Each kit is a combination of online content plus a package of specialty art supplies for each student, so once you pick it up, you have the rest of the year to incorporate the content into your unit planning. The online content contains videos of our art educators guiding students step by step through different activities and art lessons which are all connected by the themes of our gallery exhibitions. Also included are virtual exhibition tours and video interviews with gallery artists so students can learn about contemporary Canadian Artists and connect their work and experiences to the exhibition artworks.
