After overwhelming interest in the “Make Art Kit” at-home fine art program, the Judith & Norman Alix Art Gallery is pleased to announce the release of a Virtual Learning Unit for the classroom, in partnership with the Lambton Kent District School Board (LKDSB).  

Each Virtual Learning Unit offers a series of art-based learning experiences designed to guide students through a virtual exhibition and provide opportunities for deeper learning. An artist interview, viewing exercise and a variety of hands-on art-making activities have been recorded and can be accessed through Google Drive. The unit can be enjoyed at a pace that best suits students in both a physical or virtual classroom. 

“We are excited to share our first Virtual Learning Unit with the community while we look forward to the day when we will be able to host school tours at the Judith & Norman Alix Art Gallery again,” said Anna Miccolis, Community Art & Education Coordinator, Judith & Norman Alix Art Gallery.  “We hope that virtual learning in this way will engage students in their creativity and critical thinking skills until then.” 

LKDSB teachers can contact Matt Sanders for registration by phone or email:
