Students discussing sketches by Alex Colville

Take part in our school program for grades K-12. Tours use active looking, reflection and discussion to explore artworks on view. Engagement with exhibitions at the Owens encourage critical thinking and provide students with opportunities to make connections beyond the exhibition to personal experience.

This program addresses multiple curriculum areas including Art Education, English Language Arts and Social Studies embracing the idea of learning "through the arts". Many tours incorporate a hands-on art making component using the current exhibitions as the source of inspiration.

Tours typically last one hour, however, shorter or longer visits can be arranged to accommodate individual class schedules.
