Schools & Groups


CAG in the Classroom

The Contemporary Art Gallery offers engaging arts programs for students from K to 12. Led by experienced art educators, programs invite students to explore CAG exhibitions through guided observation, facilitated discussion and hands-on art-making activities. Utilizing inquiry-based learning strategies, students and teachers are encouraged to creatively experiment with visual art processes and materials, while reflecting critically on the diverse themes, perspectives and ideas encountered in contemporary art. All programs are designed to meet the core competencies identified in the BC Curriculum.

In light of COVID-19 and continued physical distancing measures, CAG is pleased to offer its school programs both virtually and on-site for the 2021/2022 school year. See right column for details.

Post-Secondary and Community Groups

We offer custom tours for university and college classes, ELL groups, and a range of other community organizations. Our tours are participant-centered and inquiry-driven, connecting participant knowledge and experience with opportunities to deepen engagement with contemporary art. Tours are suitable for groups with any level of knowledge or experience of visual art.
