Education program

Art education is one of the principal pillars of the Dundas West Museum. In recent years we have seen how students and teachers use the murals as an educative tool. The murals at the Museum tell stories of the area’s heritage and history, and of the many cultures that have passed through.

The “Three Sisters Mural” by Paula Tikay & Aner, in particular has been an attraction to students and historians that explore the history and teachings of the First Nations cultures that have inhabited the territory since before the arrival settlers.

Educational alliances have been formed with the Alexander Muir / Groove Junior and Senior Public School and the Shirley Street Junior Public School, to take part in the art education of students.

Anti-graffiti and mural workshops are also provided to the educational community in Dundas West. Many local and international artists have had a chance to collaborate with youth living in the area.
