SCHOOLS

Explore the past, contemplate the present, and discover the future at the McMichael!

For the 2018–2019 school year, the McMichael continues to showcase diverse, thought-provoking and engaging exhibitions that celebrate The Art of Canada*. Outstanding shows of contemporary and modernist works of art will be on display, along with the gallery’s well-known works presented through a fresh curatorial lens.

Opening this October is the internationally acclaimed exhibition David Milne: Modern Painting, showcasing Milne’s artistic development and journey into modernity as he moved from the bustling sidewalks of New York to the war-torn landscapes of Northern France. This exhibition includes several works produced for the War Memorial Fund. Coinciding with both the Milne exhibition and 100th anniversary of the Armistice, Stephen Andrews: Frames of War opens in November. This contemporary exhibition of Andrews’ war related pencil crayon artworks presents a unique opportunity to explore the impact of the Great War on Canadian history and national identity.

The continuing presentation of The Art of Canada: Director’s Cut and Indigenous galleries provides the perfect framework to celebrate the many facets of Canadian history and culture, and experience an all encompassing picture of Canadian art.

A CREATIVE APPROACH TO LEARNING

The McMichael’s highly interactive programs are designed to advance students’ visual literacy, nurture creative thinking, and foster interpretation and communication skills.

Various in-gallery and 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 issues.

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