We’re taking art to the kids!
Just months following our Vancouver launch, we’re excited to be hitting the road to kick off the first of many school visits through our Art Connection program.
Please touch the art work” is at the very core of our philosophy. We understand how important a multi-sensory learning experience is for the future leaders, teachers and artists of our world. We also understand that it’s not always easy (or affordable) for schools to organize trips to the world’s favourite galleries, let alone getting up close and touching these historic pieces of art.
On Tuesday, May 2nd we’ll be taking our National Gallery of Canada and Mauritshuis collections into Thunderbird Elementary School, in East Vancouver. Potentially for the first time, children will be able to see and learn about works by great masters like Van Gogh, Monet and Vermeer.
This marks the launch of Art Connection, our Community Outreach Program, which focuses on accessibility and education about art. We will also provide fun activities such as informative colouring sheets based on our Verus Art collections.
