2020-21 Active Schools

This school year is going to look a little different and so will our Active Schools program. We are hard at work, building programs that students and teachers will enjoy, while following all Alberta Health Services guidelines to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community.

To discuss options for your class, please contact any of our programmers: Active Schools 2020/21 Program Contacts


Complimentary educational resources

Inspired by the current exhibition at Gallery@501, Art Reflection Sheets encourage close looking, feature information about the artists or artwork and contain suggested activities. These complimentary resources—which can be used by themselves or incorporated into a larger curriculum unit—can be facilitated by a teacher or followed by a student independently.
