Learn, explore and create through art – now online!
We’ve adapted our popular visual arts school program to a virtual format, delivered live on Zoom.
VIRTUAL SCHOOL FIELD TRIPS
GALLERY TOUR & ART WORKSHOP
Led by our educators, your virtual visit includes a video tour of our recent Art Gallery exhibition, Wayfinding, for inspiration and conversation, followed by hands-on artmaking in your classroom.
This 90-minute program emphasizes visual literacy, critical thinking, and technical art skills that support your classroom curriculum. Our sessions are suitable for students from Kindergarten to Grade 8 and can be tailored to different ages and learning styles.
Our Virtual School Field Trips include an interactive discussion about artworks in our gallery exhibition, video interviews of professional artists speaking about their work and what it means to be an artist, and live instruction for a class artmaking activity.

INSPIRED BY OUR EXHIBITON

Wayfinding brings together recent work by local artists Leanne M. Christie, Devon Knowles and Sara Graham, who live and create art in response to their cities—Coquitlam, Port Moody and Vancouver—and the urban architecture that makes up these spaces and others like them.
Big Ideas from this Exhibition:
- Art draws attention to things we might not notice
- Exploring human relationships to the built environment
- Walking as a practice to engage with the city
- Mapping, documenting and creative re-imagining of the physical spaces around us
- Looking at moments of transition and transformation
- Oil Painting (Christie), Experimental Stained Glass (Knowles) and Photography (Graham)
Technology Requirements for Schools:
- Strong Internet connection
- Access to video/sound system (can be a laptop) that includes:
- A screen (to see our educators)
- A webcam (so our educators can see you)
- A microphone (to speak to our educators)
- Speakers (to hear our educators)
