Take a virtual trip to AGNES this school year

School Program

Take advantage of our school program!

Our 2020–2021 school program is online and available for both synchronous and asynchronous learning. We invite grades 1–6 students to explore the exhibition Nocturne. The program embraces sensory exploration of the night while considering the landscape genre in Canadian historical art. Artists’ enduring fascination with the hours between sunset and sunrise provides the foundation for curriculum links in poetry, painting and perspective. This 45-minute program includes a guided online tour presentation and activity, which can be done at home or in class. Learn more and book online today.

Watch a short clip featuring works in the exhibition.
