ARTSEARCH is a curriculum-based program that has been designed for Grade 6 teachers and students in the Windsor/Essex region. It has two main components: an interactive teacher/student web resource guide that can be found on the Artsearch website; and a two-hour visit to the AGW which includes a tour and studio activity.
Both the Artsearch guide and Gallery visit use the theme of landscape to explore several subject areas:
Teachers are asked to prepare their students for the gallery visit by completing one or two Pre-Visit Lesson Plans. They are also encouraged to develop the knowledge that students gain from the gallery visit by completing one or two Post-Visit Lesson Plans. The extent of preparation and follow-up that teachers do with their class remains at the teachers' discretion.
