School Programming

Many schools are regular visitors to the gallery, coming for exhibition tours, skill-based workshops or combinations of both. We have numerous curriculum-based programs to offer and make a special effort to work with the educators in our community to adjust our programs to the needs of individual classes. Outreach programs are also available; an experienced artist instructor can teach many techniques in your classroom. 

For bookings, please contact our Education Coordinator, Rea Kelly, at rkelly@grimsby.ca or call 905-945-3246.
