Gallery School Programs

Surrey Art Gallery is currently offering one registerable program and additional curriculum bundles to support ongoing engagement in contemporary art, artmaking, and inquiry-based learning as it integrates BC cross-curricular Big Ideas and Learning Standards. 

Homes and Habitats: Exploring Nature and Ecology through Art 

Developed by experienced art educators, this unit of study considers how artists use their practice to explore nature and ecology. Art and science connect as students explore the concept of habitats by sculpting a world for living things and engaging how contemporary art can raise questions of stewardship and sustainability. 

The unit has three components that involve the tradition of close observation study and drawing; the tracking of the original HBH clay hand building project through video instruction; and the extension of this theme to organisms connected within habitats, through a zine making outcome. Resources include video lessons, a Teachers’ Guide, and printable visual materials paired with takeout clay for your class, designed for single use.
