Homer Watson House & Gallery
CURRICULUM-BASED VISUAL ART AND HISTORY PROGRAMS
While participating in a school program with Homer Watson House & Gallery, students will have the opportunity to think and feel as they explore, problem solve, express, interpret and evaluate. Classes will be able to participate in a full-length lesson with one of our dedicated professional artists in which elements of design are discussed. Additionally, they will receive a tour of our Gallery and a lesson about the life and times of Homer Watson. Students will be given the opportunity to learn about the rich history of Waterloo region and witness some of the tools that Homer Watson used to create his masterpieces. Participants will view many of Watson’s painting and local artists’ exhibits before creating artwork of their own.
*Please note that most programs can be modified into an outreach program.
