Educational Projects

At The Silver Heron Gallery, we believe that dialogue about contemporary art nourishes the mind, sparks imagination and builds community. It is important to us to invest in our city’s youth by offering contemporary art programs which combine challenging content with a friendly social context. That's why we have designed our programs to educate, engage and galvanize our art community.

Education programs and staff serve as catalysts in making connections between visitors of all ages and the arts, ideas and resources of The Silver Heron Gallery. All programs are led by Artist/Educators as part of a core educational strategy that focuses on working with practicing artists as educators and collaborators in all aspects of program creation and implementation. Programs and interpretive strategies aim to spark inquiry, and to support and celebrate the creative interests of the individual and communities.
