2021-2023 Virtual Education Workshop Recordings

During the pandemic the Varley Art Gallery provided free, live, virtual ART+ Workshops aimed at primary school children (Grades K-8). Most of these were recorded and are now online. See the Virtual Education Recordings drop down menu below for a list of available workshops and related links, organized by grade level.

The Varley Art Gallery of Markham’s virtual education programs were made possible through the generous support of the Varley-McKay Art Foundation of Markham.
