Art To Go Classroom Experiences

Our in-school field trip delivers a talented artist-instructor armed with a fresh art project right to your classroom!

Our experienced and enthusiastic educators bring exciting art techniques, materials, and instruction, all wrapped up in an age-appropriate program. Students will learn new visual art skills and have a lot of fun too. Our program can be tailored to to your curriculum focus or delivered as pure visual art instructions. It is an invaluable means of bringing art making to your students!

Class time is approximately one-half day (3 hours) and can be booked for either the morning or afternoon. There is a minimum charge of 20 students for this program.

Art To Go programs are offered during January and February only.
