MORE ABOUT THE WORKSHOP TOUR
Every fall, students get to learn directly from professional artists and experience artistic creation first hand.
The tour assembles a group of working artists, sending them out for full days of giving workshops in their fields. With the Workshop Tour, the Saskatchewan Cultural Exchange strives to nurture independent thinking, the imagination, respect for one another, and enthusiasm for life in students through balanced programs integrating multiple forms of artistic activity.
What does the school get? One Day –– Five Artists –– 20 Workshops
Workshops are specifically tailored for any age group from elementary to high school. The program has long been referenced by artists who have chosen their profession in part due to early interaction with the Workshop Tour. The tour continues with the goal of encouraging the next generation of independent and creative thinkers.
The Saskatchewan Cultural Exchange is excited to share the Workshop Tour with as many Saskatchewan communities as possible each fall.
