As well as art curriculum, many other topics are discussed such as social studies, economics and history. Teachers are welcome to inquire about specific curriculum outcomes related to your student’s current studies.

Studio Workshop– $5.00 per student
A studio workshop includes a 15-minute introduction to one of our Gallery exhibitions followed by a 45-minute art activity in the Schurman Family Studio related to the exhibition. The workshop activities offered may include drawing, painting, printmaking, bookmaking, or 3-D construction. Teachers can request an art activity of their choice.

Combined Tour and Workshop– $6.00 per student
This two-hour visit combines the tours described above, with one hour spent in the Gallery and one hour in the studio. If you have more than two classes it is recommended that you combine your Art Gallery visit with our Back Stage tour, or perhaps with another tour offered in Charlottetown.

What are Relaxed Performances?


Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
