We give teachers excellent art education resources to support them in the classroom and beyond.
We offer 75-minute exhibition tours designed for school groups. Students are encouraged to find meaning in art and strengthen their visual literacy and thinking skills. This unique group education experience exposes students to several exhibitions, including Canadian, British, European, and contemporary art. We recommend booking three weeks in advance.
Our Education Coordinator is available to help with any questions you may have.

A fresh set of art lesson plans featuring art from the Beaverbrook Art Gallery's collection and classroom-ready art activities.

Edukit is an online art education resource for elementary school teachers. It presents 22 works of art by Anglophone, Francophone and First Nations artists, including 11 New Brunswick artists. Each artist is represented by a piece of art from our collection. Along with a high-resolution reproduction, there’s an artist biography, discussion section, glossary, activities, and a list of online and bibliographical resources for further research. The Edukit complements art curricula and connects art with other disciplines such as social studies, literacy, science and math.
Edukit was made possible by funding from the Sheila Hugh MacKay Foundation and the Province of New Brunswick.
