Tours at CAMH are designed to cultivate critical and flexible thinking. The programs developed by the CAMH Education Team aim to guide a visitor in the exploration of new spaces, ideas, and perspectives.
CAMH offers group tours for visitors of all ages, backgrounds, and interests. During guided tours, trained members of our esteemed FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) Team encourage visitors to creatively observe their surroundings. The FAQ Team promotes open-ended discussion and reflection, making connections between art and the everyday. Educators can also choose to participate in a hands-on workshop where students gain insight into new materials, the artistic process, and creative approaches to making.
Educators of all levels interested in tailoring their visit to align with a specific curriculum are encouraged to contact our Tour Programs Coordinator. Together we can design further learning opportunities.
