New in 2021, the MacKenzie Art Gallery is excited to partner with the Remai Modern to offer guided, virtual workshops for classrooms! This interactive experience is led by gallery guides, who will provide encounters with artworks from both museum’s collections. Students will have the opportunity to ask questions, participate in discussions, be creative and gain a deeper understanding of art and artists. 

Using materials informed by provincial curricula and current interpretive, cultural, and pedagogical strategies, participants will learn to think critically, make creative connections, and express themselves. The same opportunity to encounter transformative experiences of the world through art – now online. Live, interactive, 90 minute workshops can be booked for classes of up to 35 students and include a teacher resource and lesson plan for a required hands-on pre-activity. Trained Gallery Facilitators conduct digital sessions that include an in-depth examination of exhibition themes and artworks, drawing meaningful connections through student engagement and live response.

The MacKenzie Art Gallery is now offering an exciting new line of workshops featuring digital technology, connecting audiences with artists working directly in the medium.

One of our talented digital artists will present an overview and demonstration of their work on a live video call. Participants will have an opportunity to see a digital work of art produced right before their eyes, and be able to engage directly with the artist throughout the presentation, including dedicated time for questions and discussion.

To book contact Ken Duczek, Coordinator of Learning Initiatives, and include a first and second choice for program date. Register your group soon, as spaces are limited.
