Let our volunteers bring a bit of the National Gallery of Canada to your classroom with Looking at Pictures! Our trained volunteers will lead your students on an interactive journey towards greater art appreciation using a number of visual art reproductions.

Visits are open to the school in Ottawa-Gatineau and free of charge for elementary school students from grades 1 to 6. Presentations are available in English or French and last 30 to 60 minutes depending on grade level and school timetable.

If your school would like to apply for this program, please fill out the request form (PDF) and return it to us by November 30, 2016. For more information please contact the volunteer office at 613-990-0130 or via email nhanson@gallery.ca.
