Artists In The Schools
Learn more about our TD Artists in the Schools program, which brings professional artists into schools across SD68, SD69, and SD79 to teach different art-making techniques, and foster creativity in the classroom. You can also bring your class into the Gallery for a tour of the current exhibition and art activity!

Carried Through the Water is a solo exhibition by artist Diyan Achjadi that explores the ways that visual storytelling can be used to document the impact of human activity on the ecosystem. After an interactive tour students will make their own stop motion animation video. Available April 16 – June 26, 2022.
Gallery, Museum & Library Visit
Share a bus and bring two classes downtown—one group tours the Gallery tour the other can visit Nanaimo Museum. Both groups can meet at the Vancouver Island Regional Library’s Nanaimo Harbourfront branch for lunch and storytime, and then switch in the afternoon for your Gallery or Museum visit! This option can help you make the most of your class excursions budget.
Gallery and Museum visits are each 1.5 hours in length, and available Tuesday through Friday. To book please contact Aisha at Nanaimo Art Gallery and the Nanaimo Museum with your preferred time and date.
