|The Vancouver Art Gallery provides exhibition tours designed for school groups. These programs introduce tools to foster visual literacy in students, encouraging them to find pleasure and meaning in art, and to think critically about the array of visual images that surround them.
School VisitsInteractive programs, for students in grades 2-12, include guided exhibition tours, art-making workshops, self-guided tours and full-day residency programs. Spring 2013 school programs will run from February 26 - June 13. The first day to book a school program is Saturday, January 26, through the Online Booking Form.
