Over the course of 90 minutes, students gain experience reading and interpreting visual materials. Additionally, the workshops allow students to gain deeper experiential understanding of the process of production, as well as the material and conceptual themes. Guided tours can be tailored to meet the specific needs of each group. For more information or to book a tour, please contact Sarah Nesbitt at or by telephone at (204) 942-1043 ext 27.
