Groups of up to 20 students can access a selection of works of art from our superb collections—17,000+ works—for examination in the David McTavish Art Study Room. Such sessions are flexible, intimate and particularly enriching. The seminar-style room, complete with AV system, allows students to view the works closely, examine their material character and engage in discussion.
In addition to self-guided tours, we offer custom in-gallery curatorial tours for groups of up to 30 students. Larger classes can be accommodated by subdividing the group across several shifts.
Faculty may propose an exhibition development project as the focus of a seminar course (normally graduate level), working with gallery staff to identify a body of work from the collection that suits their learning goals.
We can assist you in developing engaging assignments that draw upon exhibitions or collections.
Individual faculty or graduate students may book research sessions with works of art or with other on-site resources, including gallery records.
The bright André Biéler Studio can accommodate groups up to 25 students for hands-on learning and/or art and wellness sessions. Charges may apply.
We offer a spectrum of artists’ talks, tours, films, scholarly speakers and panel discussions each year. Sign up for our weekly e-newsletter, or visit our website listing.

Screen Cultures and Curatorial Studies
Agnes has partnered with the Department of Film and Media to offer the Screen Cultures and Curatorial Studies graduate program (MA and PhD), which launched in 2019. Students benefit from an enriching tripartite immersion in studies, creation and curation, with an emphasis on visual and digital media. Agnes professional staff lead two curatorial courses in this innovative program.
