Through the Eyes of a Child
Each year, WAG-Qaumajuq celebrates artwork made by young people during annual classes at WAG Studio. Kids get the chance to showcase their work in a professional setting and the public has the opportunity to be inspired by these creative young artists!
Accessible Arts Education
Making art classes accessible for children & youth has always been a key pillar of WAG-Qaumajuq. Thanks to education partnerships, we have several seasonal opportunities to connect kids with art classes.
Through a longstanding relationship with the Winnipeg School Division, approximately 400 students attend programs at the WAG each year, including the Young Artist Program, Art Expression, Quantum, and the Teen Artist Program.

Each year, Seven Oaks School Division provides art courses and exhibition tours for grades 6-8. Students learn by experiencing art, while accompanying teachers gain professional development by participating in the program. Transportation is provided to and from WAG Studio by the division.
