2022-2023 School program
What is art?
How are ideas and emotions expressed through it?
What do works of art teach us about ourselves and others?
How do artists’ interpretations mirror the realities of our world and give them meaning?
This is what your students will explore through activities that are every bit as fun as they are relevant.
- A moment of fun and creativity with your students.
- Exposure to an inspiring environment that stimulates curiosity and creativity.
- A welcoming place for all, regardless of artistic knowledge or abilities.
A visit to the Museum is not about…
- Being tested on what you know.
- Having to sit quietly through a boring activity.
- Listening to a presentation given by an expert.
In designing all of its school program activities, the Museum uses a participatory approach to meet the specific needs of each group. Students are guided through their discovery of artworks by means of observation questions, games and mediation activities that are adapted to their level of understanding.
Most activities include a creative component that bridges theory and practice and offers a positive experience with art.
The MMFA’s educational activities are framed within a cultural teaching approach. In addition to fostering the students’ cross-curricular competency development, they enable children to draw links between the various subjects and put what they’ve learned in context.
Openness and trust
Through their interaction with artworks, students become exposed to our society’s cultural realities and issues, learn about the world, tap into their sensitivity, develop critical thinking skills, acquire the keys to interpreting artworks and cultural objects, and gain confidence in their ability to appreciate art in general.
Dialogue and empathy
The Museum is a safe space for discussion that favours the expression of diverse viewpoints and an exchange of ideas. Our educational activities encourage students to explore multiple perspectives and develop a world view rooted in empathy and respect.
Planning your visit
We recommend you review the Museum’s code of conduct with your students by referring to our MuseuManners.
