ART LAB is an interactive program that reinforces the Elements and Principles of Design through the exploration of original works of art and the creation of interpretive imagery. ART LAB is a partnership program between the Art Gallery of Guelph (AGG) and the Upper Grand District School Board that focuses on the grade nine visual arts curriculum.
ART LAB is an interactive program that runs a half day in length (2.5 hours). Through this program, students will visit the Art Gallery of Guelph to learn about its permanent collections, specifically the Donald Forster Sculpture Park. ART LAB includes an introduction to AGG, its position in the community, the functions of the gallery, and a tour of current exhibitions.
ART LAB provides students with information about the sculpture park to aid their understanding and interpretation of the sculptures and the in creation of drawings in response to the art works that they see. Each student will choose one sculpture (from the 38 sculptures in the park) on which they will focus their research, study, and creation of an original drawing based on the Elements and Principles of Design. Following their visit to AGG, students will complete a written reflection about their experiences with art at AGG.
