The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts invites your students to discover our constantly changing world through the imagination of artists who interpret and reinvent it. As students interact with the Museum’s collections, as well as the temporary exhibition Riopelle: The Call of Northern Landscapes and Indigenous Cultures, they will explore the themes of the environment, territory and ecology.
More information:

In-class, the Museum’s mediators will give your students a unique experience in an open atmosphere that fosters dialogue and an understanding of the world based on respect and empathy. Our activities focus on observation, discussion and creation.

La vie secrète de l’art (in French)

These podcasts of five short stories written by children’s author Simon Boulerice approach art by highlighting the relationship between the senses and the imagination. Podcasts help people appreciate art by offering multiple types of cultural mediation to foster connections between areas of learning and creative development. The Chair in Multimodal Media Literacy at Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) has also developed teaching aids based on the podcasts.
