Educational Support

The Varley-McKay Art Foundation of Markham works with the Varley Art Gallery to make art more accessible to school groups as well as the general public. Our docent program supports the Varley Art Gallery’s education team, providing group tours to education groups visiting the gallery. We also provide the financial means to sustain the Gallery’s Lunch and Learn program to further artistic and curatorial discussion. We also employ Gallery Animateurs to introduce visitors to the Gallery’s exhibitions and programs, initiate discussions on the exhibitions and to assist with overseeing and caring for the exhibition galleries during the busy summer months.
