The Art Gallery of Greater Victoria is committed to high quality educational programming. We launched the Teacher Resource Guide in September, and since then, our Gallery educators Sherry Willing and Jen Van de Pol have been busy facilitating 1/2 day workshops in participating schools along with guest artists Alexis Hogan and April Russell.
This new Gallery program consists of a series of lectures, tours, interactive programs and workshops with guest facilitators and speakers that will animate aspects of our diverse permanent collections. The first in this series will coincide with our exhibition Millennia: Asian Art through the Ages.
Every third Sunday from October to June, the Gallery’s Family Sunday Program welcomes guest artists and promotes a hands-on introduction to art. On November 20, the event was inspired by the collaborative work of Vancouver Island based artists Jim, Nathan and Cedric Bomford.
To mark Black History month, we are collaborating with the BC Black History Awareness Society and MediaNet to present:
FOR JACKSON: A TIME CAPSULE (2004; 49 mins) a film by Leila Sujir.
