NEW: Genetic Modification: Monsters in Society
Fairy Tales, Monster and the Genetic Imagination
(Fine Arts, Social Studies)


What happens if humans begin to direct their own evolution? As the world of science becomes further fascinated by the unknown, genetic modification of plants, animals and humans is being tested. The Fairy Tales, Monsters and the Genetic Imagination exhibit challenges these notions. Join an educator in the gallery space to discuss how we would deal with these changes within our society and then move into the art studio to create your own genetically modified beings.

NEW: Deconstructing the Fairy Tale: Reconstructing Your Own Tale
Fairy Tales, Monsters and the Genetic Imagination
(Language Arts, Social Studies)


Throughout history fairy tales were designed to teach. The difference between good and bad, happy and sad, the ups and downs of life; these stories were constructed with a consequence in mind. In this program, students will work within the Fairy Tales, Monsters and the Genetic Imagination exhibit to discuss and deconstruct several pieces of art created using well known fairy tales as inspiration. With these works of art as reference, students will then use straightforward writing tools to aid in the creation of their own stories.

Learning To Draw
(Fine Arts, Language Arts)

Being an artist isn't only about creating paintings, drawings or sculptures. Sometimes being an artist is about how you look at the world around you. Slowing down to draw makes us look more deeply and critically. This skill-building program will help students focus on their observation skills and drawing techniques to capture the essence of the artifact.

Art Past. Art Present.
(Social Studies, Art, Language Arts)

Teachers: Please note that some of the exhibits may contain nudity.

How is art a reflection of society? What does historical art tell us about the past? What does contemporary art tell us about society today? Using Glenbow Museum’s diverse collection of historic and contemporary art, we will take an art journey from the late 1800s to the present exploring continuity, changes and artistic processes.
