Education Program

The AGSM's school program is coordinated with the gallery's exhibition program and incorporates the Manitoba Curriculum including drama, geography, health, language arts, math, physical education, principles of art making and social history.  AGSM staff consults with teachers, make classroom visits, and give gallery tours to help students understand both the materials artists use as well as our surrounding area.  For more information, see the AGSM's website.


Art Classes

The AGSM has multiple classrooms and instructors to teach classes in ceramics, drawing, digital media, painting, photography and printmaking.  They offer four seasonal terms per year and a variety of classes each term to choose from.  Costs vary depending on duration and type of class as well as whether you are a member of the AGSM.  However, children and teen classes include the cost of materials in their tuition costs!
