For the 2023/2024 school year, the Kelowna Art Gallery is excited to announce a new lineup of tour programming as well as ways to bring the Gallery live to your classroom. Our tour options are currently available both as in-person tours and through our live virtual format via Zoom. The Gallery’s diversity of exhibitions and educational programming support various disciplines in the BC Curriculum and Core Competencies.

Our in-person school tours combine educational exhibition tours with hands-on art activities for students of all ages and abilities. Guided tours provide students with cultural and social context for the works of art on display. Group discussions during the tours encourage students to exercise creative and critical thinking. The hands-on art activities provide a fun, creative extension to the students’ learning experience, while helping them develop specific artistic skills and visual literacy.

Not able to visit the Gallery in person? Then our live virtual tours bring the Gallery to your classroom! Our knowledgeable and engaging education staff will host an exhibition tour with your class via Zoom. This program includes opportunities for interaction, reflection, and questions.
