Learning – School Visits

The McMichael is home to a world-class art collection and is uniquely situated within one of the few areas of urban wilderness. An extraordinary place, the McMichael has an iconic presence in Canadian history as a meeting place for artists and art lovers eager to creatively explore the notion of Canada and to celebrate the country’s art, culture, and natural environment.

Creative Learning Experience

The McMichael’s highly interactive programs are designed to advance students’ visual literacy, nurture higher-order thinking and communication skills, boost creativity, and get students excited! 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 experiences that engage students and create lasting memories.
