The McMichael’s highly interactive programs for all ages are designed to advance students’ visual literacy, nurture creative thinking, and foster interpretation and communication skills. Teachers are invited to choose from a wide selection of tours and workshops that encourage creativity in gallery and outdoor settings, as well as McMichael Signature Studios which have been designed in collaboration with established Canadian artists. Our studio programs invite students to respond creatively to challenges, obstacles, and issues they face today, including finding one’s place in a diverse society, understanding the development of Canada as a nation and responding to current social and environmental challenges.

These innovative learning experiences can be applied across the curriculum and address the Ministry’s expectations for each grade level.

McMichael Art Educators and Studio Instructors excel at managing and accommodating individual learning styles while inspiring creativity. Their knowledge and teaching skills foster meaningful and engaging experiences for students, creating truly lasting memories.
