Education Guide

An Education guide is a document compiled for each exhibit that includes information on the exhibit, curator, artist(s), art work and its meaning, topics, readings & articles, and resources.

These guides are helpful and are used by both faculty and students as they provide valuable information in a concise form. 

 

NOTE: A large number of the further readings and the resources in each guide are sources gathered from Humber Library and can be found there.
