We have created our exhibition tours to encourage students to slow down and make connections with the art in the Gallery and participate in studio activities that they may not get a chance to do at home or school. Each program complements the BC Ministry of Education's current Fine Arts Curriculum.
School tour programs are approximately one hour and 30 minutes in length and are geared to each age group. Two Rivers Gallery school tour programs promote critical thinking skills and provide opportunities for self-expression.
Exhibitions change every ten or twelve weeks so your class could visit the Gallery three or four times each year and expose your students to a huge variety of artists and art.
Each program involves an interactive tour of each exhibition. We keep the group moving, thinking, answering questions and doing things in the Galleries. Each program ends with a hands-on studio program in the Atrium inspired by the exhibitions. Students get the opportunity to express themselves and exercise their creative side!
