What makes you an artist? (Grades 9 – 12)
The human experience is made up of personal and social experiences. Artists use a variety of materials and processes to creatively express what is happening in their lives and in their communities. Students will focus their examination of works of art on this essential question:
How are artists, their creative process, and their works of art influenced by their personal, social, and art experiences?
Dedicated to providing a student-centred learning experience, we use questioning strategies based on the critical analysis process that encourage students to share their opinions and ideas about art. Students participate in activities that are interactive and promote critical thinking and creativity. During a guided visit, students will move between large and small group discussions and activities led by experienced staff and dedicated volunteers.
Education staff determine which galleries to visit based on the theme of the program and what works of art are on view the day of your visit. If there is one (1) specific work of art, collection type, or special exhibition you would like to see during a portion of your guided visit, please specify at the time of booking.
Students can make art in response to this guided visit by booking a Secondary Artmaking Visit for a full day of fun at the AGO!
