Take a Field Trip to Agnes

Grades 1–8

Our Relations

In-person, Tuesdays–Fridays 4 October–2 December, 10 am and 1 pm

Students in grades 1–8 explore their other-than-human relations—land, animals, plant life—examining the role they play in protecting the land, followed by a workshop where they have the chance to reflect on and create a work of art portraying a place they most want to protect. The tour looks at relationships between us as a people and the environment while engaging with art by Robert Houle, Roy Kakegamic, Jane Ash Poitras, Joe David and more in the exhibition Land Protectors.

Fill out the booking request form and the Program Team will confirm your field trip time! We can’t wait to have you visit in-person again.

Fee: $60/class (*Limestone District School Board is supporting their classes by covering this fee.)

The Student Docent training program is generously supported by the Lloyd Carr-Harris Foundation.

Reflecting on Lii Zoot Tayr (Grades 9–12)
Reflect on the exhibition Lii Zoot Tayr (Other Worlds), an exhibition that features the work of five contemporary Métis artists. Students consider the themes present in the exhibition including in/visibility, unseen forces and the natural environment. This asynchronous school program is designed to enrich Indigenous arts education with connections to the curriculum.

Nocturne (Grades 1–6)
Explore the exhibition Nocturne. This asynchronous program embraces the sensory exploration of the night while considering the landscape genre in Historical Canadian Art. Artists’ enduring fascination with the hours between sunset and sunrise provides the foundation for curriculum links in poetry, painting and perspective.

The school programs are supported by the Iva Speers Fund for Art Education and the Canada Council for the Arts.
