Our education and outreach programs for schools provide opportunities for teachers and students to encounter significant contemporary and historical visual art. We work with educators in multiple ways: through in-person and virtual tours, multisession collaborations, outdoor explorations, and artist projects.
Our programs engage critical thinking, creativity, communication, and empathy through looking at, discussing, and making art. There are also rich opportunities to explore cross-curricular connections.
We offer special programming and workshops related to zines and zine-making in connection with the Owens Art Gallery’s Teeny Tiny Zine Library.
We support educators through periodic Teacher’s Resources for special projects. You can find our most recent Teacher’s Resource as part of the online project, You Are Here: Seeing Sackville through the Owens Art Gallery Collection.
If you are an educator who would like to book a tour, collaborate, or discuss the ways that our exhibitions might connect to curriculum areas that you are exploring, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
All our education and outreach programs are offered free of charge thanks to generous funding from the Canada Council for the Arts, Province of New Brunswick, Town of Sackville, The Hon. Robert V. Barritt, and Friends of the Owens Art Gallery.
