JOSEPH ALFRED REMAI FAMILY FOUNDATION SCHOOL TOURS

School Tours at a Glance

Tours for Saskatoon schools have been generously sponsored by the Joseph Alfred Remai Family Foundation. The Foundation has committed $350,000 over the next three years to allow Saskatoon’s K to grade 12 students to access works of art on view at Remai Modern and develop a lifelong appreciation for art.

Joseph Alfred Remai Family Foundation School Tours encourage experimentation, growth and personal connection with art. Select a Highlights Tour, featuring not-to-be-missed objects currently on view; or a Picasso Tour, with a focus on our collection of Picasso linocuts and ceramic works in historic and modern context. Connecting exhibitions to curriculum needs of teachers and students, Remai Modern School Tours demonstrate that art crosses disciplines and is relevant to daily life.

In these tours, students can:

· Compare and contrast original works of art and build critical viewing skills

· Understand the ideas of a wide variety of professional historical and contemporary art/artists

· Practice inquiry-based and hands-on learning

· Develop a lifelong appreciation for art

Tours must be booked two weeks in advance. We can accommodate two classrooms from a school at the same time. We offer tours in French by request—please indicate if this is your preference in the notes section on the booking form, or any special requests you may have. Your Program Guide will contact you in advance to discuss your visit.
