School Programs


Connect your students with art in an authentic and meaningful way. At Station Gallery, our approach is hands-on, engaging, and cross-curricular; whether you come to us or we come to you.

With an emphasis on materials exploration, process-based learning, inquiry-based knowledge acquisition, and a student-centred approach, each visit with our professional artist educators are enriching and engaging. Our goal is to create a lasting impression and inspire an authentic learning experience that extends well beyond the gallery walls.

Station Gallery is pleased to offer a variety of gallery and outreach programs that link to your curriculum needs and provide fantastic opportunities for students to create their own art inspired by the exhibitions.

smART Gallery Workshops

Grades K – 12

We explore our permanent and touring exhibits to offer in-depth opportunities for students to connect with artworks in a gallery setting.

Each program is based on a thematic exploration of artwork and enhances inquiry-based and critical thinking skills, inter-disciplinary approaches to learning, and vocabulary and skill development through a variety of creative, interactive exercises. Additionally, many of our programs are connected to STEM where indicated.

All our smART tours are cross curricular.
