TEACHERS’ EVENTS

The McMichael offers teachers and educators the opportunity to experience the Gallery’s innovative programming with tours of new exhibitions and the chance to learn about school program offerings. These events are available to educators at no cost throughout the year and will be either in-person or virtual in accordance with Public Health guidelines.

Exploring Abstract Art

Saturday, March 23, 2024 | 10 am

We invite you to join us at the McMichael for a private event designed for teachers and educators, featuring a tour of the new special exhibition, Bertram Brooker: When We Awake!, as well as a hands-on art activity exploring compositions in abstract art.

Bertram Brooker (1888–1955), was the first Canadian artist to mount an exhibition of abstract paintings, in 1927. Guest curated by art historian Michael Parke-Taylor, When We Awake! is the first comprehensive presentation of Brooker’s oeuvre in nearly half a century, gathering his diverse work in painting, drawing, and sculpture.
