Students sketching figures in motion during gym class

We think that fantastic projects come out of collaborations with teachers and their students. We have worked with schools on partnerships that have taken place over multiple sessions allowing us to dive deeper to explore various topics from Alex Colville and his connections to Sackville to the theme of Night and the shadowy stories that it can inspire. These projects engage students in visual art through looking, talking, investigating, making and reflecting. We get to know students and students get to know the Owens through a forum that brings the voices of youth into the Gallery.
