VanGo Program

Now is the Perfect Time to Book VanGo for your Students!

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. 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.

Respecting the safety of teachers and their students and with a hopeful eye toward the future, a select roster of VanGo programmes will be offered to meet the standards of the Ontario Arts Curriculum in unique and engaging ways that encourage wellness and exploration. All 2021-2022 VanGo programs can be offered virtually or in person to serve your classroom!

How to Book
MacLaren VanGo programmes can be booked by telephone or email Monday through Friday throughout the academic year. In-person programmes are available based on Public Health and school board guidelines. When booking please let us know what program you are interested in, planned date and time, class size, and anything that will better help us serve your class. The MacLaren Art Centre requires that VanGo artists work with only one class at a time in both a virtual or in-person setting.

Note: Programme fees are based on a maximum of 30 students per class and include materials – additional materials can be included for an additional fee. VanGo materials kits will be prepared and packaged according to safety standards and will be available for pickup one week in advance.
