Students who are regularly engaged in the arts become greater thinkers and learners. MacLaren VanGo programmes offer unique opportunities for students to meet and work with professional visual artists in the classroom and at the Gallery. Students participate in meaningful cross-curricular activities that encourage creativity, skills development and visual literacy, nurturing their appreciation of visual art. VanGo artists are highly qualified, experienced art instructors dedicated to inspiring creativity in all children.
VanGo meets the requirements of the Ontario Arts Curriculum and offers links to the Language, Science and Social Studies Curriculum. All programmes include a teacher information package with booking confirmation.
Four New VanGo Programmes!
This year, the VanGo team is excited to introduce two play-based programmes for the Primary level exploring watercolour and abstract acrylic painting tools and techniques. Two new Junior level programmes have also been developed inspired by Illuminated Medieval Manuscripts and the painting of Governor-General award winning Canadian artist Landon Mackenzie. With a roster of over 25 engaging studio options, these unique programmes meet Ontario Arts Curriculum standards in dynamic and engaging ways!
Why not consider booking a VanGo programme at the Gallery? VanGo Gallery includes a field-trip to the MacLaren Art Centre that begins with a guided exhibition tour followed by a VanGo programme of your choice.
