School Programs

PAMA will be coming to you this fall. Book a PAMA Art on Wheels outreach.

We bring everything to you.

PAMA offers a wide spectrum of school programs for kindergarten to grade 8 students that incorporate Ontario Curriculum Connections. Programs are delivered either at PAMA or on-site at your school.

Our tours integrate Visual Arts, Social Studies and Science & Technology Curriculum, and make cross curricular connections through our educational exhibitions and workshops. School visits are open to all grades from kindergarten to grade 8.

Currently, PAMA educators visit your school and bring the wonder of PAMA to you. Your students can create one-of-a-kind pieces of art by learning various methods and techniques used by professional artists. After you book your program, review the information to prepare for the tour or workshop.

Booking a tour or workshop

To register your class, fill out the booking form and send it to infopama@peelregion.ca. If you have further questions, contact us at (905) 791-4055.

We will need this information:

  • Teacher name(s)
  • School name, address, phone number, and email address
  • The program(s) you wish to book
  • The day(s) you want your program on (you might want to have a few dates in mind, just in case we cannot accommodate your first choice)
  • How many students/classes will be coming (minimum 20 students and maximum 30 students per group). We can accommodate two groups per day.
  • Are you staying on-site for lunch?
  • Do you have students with special needs (will a TA or ECE be coming to assist)?
  • Any other information that might be important

We ask for a breakdown of each class at the time of booking (ex. 4 classes: 24, 25, 23, 22). If classes have less than 20 students, classes should be combined into larger groups.

After you have booked your tour, a confirmation letter will be emailed for your records. You will also receive a Teacher Information Package that includes Curriculum Connections, and Pre and Post Activities for your class.
