PD-Day Art Camps

NEW this year

We are expanding our PD Days camp program to include additional school calendars.
The following schools/school boards are included:

  • HRCE = Halifax Regional Centre for Education
  • SHSH = Sacred Heart School of Halifax
  • CSAP = Conseil Scolaire Acadien Provincial
  • HGS= Halifax Grammar School

The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia is the fun place to be on Professional Development days! Our full day workshops for primary to grade 6 students encourage creative development while teachers are participating in their professional development.

  • Creative classes led by experienced art educators
  • Hands-on art activities in the studio
  • Visits to various exhibitions for inspiration

Important Details

  • Students are to be dropped off (between 8:30 - 9 a.m.) and picked up at the Studios (between 4 - 4:45 p.m.). There is no supervision before 8:30am.
  • Lunchtime supervision is included. Students are required to bring their lunch. No NUT products please! It is suggested that students pack a snack for mid-morning and/or mid-afternoon.
  • Class ends at 4 p.m. Extended pickup is available until 4:45pm.
  • Art making can be messy so students remember to wear “work” clothes. Please pack weather appropriate clothing.
