Current Programs at Surrey Art Gallery

Bring the Gallery to the Classroom with remote learning opportunities.

Gallery School Programs are developed by experienced artist-educators and our programs 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 

Grades K−7 | Workshop Fee: $75

This unit of study considers how artists use their practice to explore nature and ecology. Art and science connect as students learn about habitats by sculpting a world for living things and engaging how contemporary art can raise questions of stewardship and sustainability. 

Resources include video lessons, a Teachers’ Guide, and printable visual materials paired with takeout clay for your class.  

Registration required. Pick-up and class times are flexible.

Engage place-based knowledge and practice while teaching elements of printmaking! Students create their own print in relation to places that have personal, cultural, and social significance to them. Program is livestreamed through MS Teams. Teachers’ Guide and artmaking materials provided.
