At the Varley Art Gallery of Markham we offer a variety of programs that extend the learning experience beyond your classroom through site-specific arts education. Inspired by our exhibitions, these programs change seasonally, making every visit unique! These programs are designed to complement and enhance the Ontario Curriculum for Visual Arts, Language Arts, Social Studies and Geography, stimulating students to observe, interpret, describe, connect and create.

The Varley Education Programs include guided cross-curricular tours and indoor/outdoor studio workshops for all grade levels. The Varley Art Gallery offers you two program choices:

  1. Exhibition-based Programs which allow your students to visit the Gallery, and
  2. Outreach Programs through which our Education team visits your classroom.
