Our Performing Arts and Visual Arts Workshops have been developed to enrich your curriculum and offer engaging, thought-provoking opportunities for your students to explore, learn and grow. 

Prior to restrictions imposed by COVID-19, we were thrilled to welcome thousands of SD43 students to our centre for educational experiences in the Performing and Visual Arts. As the school year resumes, we are eager to continue to support the students, teachers, and administrators of SD43 by continuing to offer art education field trips. Our Education programs can also be adapted for daycares and home-school students.

Our Educators are working on both in-person workshops at Evergreen, modified On the Road workshops in schools, and online offerings with live Zoom-based classes. Currently, our education team is creating a virtual field trip to the Art Gallery that will feature instruction by our artist-Educators, a virtual tour of our Exhibition, Arrangements, and an art-making activity for your class. Stay tuned for more details!  

Our Educators are creative, flexible, and ready to help teachers meet their curriculum needs – and we want to hear from you!

Are you interested in our Educators bringing modified On the Road workshops safely into your classroom? Would you prefer to set up a safe field trip and visit to the Evergreen, or would you prefer online content? Perhaps a hybrid of these options would work best for your new classroom needs?  

Whatever kind of experience you are looking for; please take our new survey to help us tailor our offerings to your classroom needs.
