The ABC’s of Contemporary Art

Please note that the Off-site Tandems are fully booked for the current school year.

October 11 to November 18 2022 and April 11 to May 19 2023

Host our team at your school! The MAC’s team of art mediators will visit your school to offer an introduction to contemporary art. This session includes a presentation of artworks from the MAC’s collection and will introduce your class to artists who integrate writing into their creative process. With a head full of ideas, your students will express themselves through bursting images revealing letters, words, and invented signs.

To host us, you must:

  • Be situated on the Island of Montréal
  • Have a computer and a projection system or monitor available
  • Have access to a high-speed Internet connection
  • Have a room with easily accessible tables

All required tools and materials are provided by the MAC.
