Exploring Art tours are designed for teachers and daycares in search of a multidisciplinary learning experience in a contemporary public art gallery.

Explore our current and upcoming art exhibits at the Art Gallery of St. Albert!

The Gallery offers a multi-faceted approach to art education that promotes deeper learning and offers multiple perspectives for students to see and interpret the world around them. The Exploring Art program instils artistic behaviour and encourages students to develop their own creative capacities for learning, while accessing other types of knowledge and methods of creative problem solving.

Exploring Art students are invited to:

  • Explore art through relevant, engaging and thought provoking themes such as Space and Place, Material and Process and Art and Society
  • Connect to an artists’ work through the sharing of stories, experiences and emotions
  • Discover cultural, historical and social contexts of the artworks on display

We can’t wait to meet you and your students. We welcome the opportunity to tailor each special visit according to student age, grade and curriculum focus.


Changing the Landscape

August 2–September 29, 2018
Viktor Brim, Matthew Allan Clarke, and Jeff Wilson explore the world around them using a variety of mediums and compositions to tell stories of places and objects in everyday life. Students will explore and discuss societal changes in Changing the Landscape; then create a unique urban landscape collage exploring shapes and composition.

 

 


Dancing the Earth

October 6–November 10, 2018
With the heart of a storyteller, Leah Dorion is a Métis interdisciplinary artist raised in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan with roots to the historic Métis community of Cumberland House. Dancing the Earth is a collection of work from the past 10 years that include her signature style of bright colors and a distinctly Métis composition. Her art pays homage to women, earth-based spirituality and indigenous knowledge. Following a tour and discussion of this colorful exhibition, students will draw into handmade scratchboard to create images inspired by the exhibition and nature.
