Give your students the opportunity to build critical thinking, communication skills and encourage their creativity, self-expression and self-discovery.
Remai Modern’s online art workshops build on the success of the museum’s in-person programs for students. Promote informal learning through viewing, discussing and making art and create chances for students to better understand themselves, their peers and their community.
Our classroom programs connect to curriculum, feature Saskatchewan and Canadian artists and encourage students to engage with compelling issues in a grade-appropriate manner. Remai Modern recognizes the importance of keeping art a fundamental element of the classroom experience. Our virtual workshop series ensures that work can continue, even if in-person workshops aren’t possible.
All of our online workshops are designed and delivered by Remai Modern’s expert Program Guides. These staff members are all practicing artists themselves and bring a wide range of art historical and practical skills to the workshops. Plus, they have experience working with children and people of all ages
