Our Primary School Programmes provide students with diverse Life-wide Learning experiences, enabling them to develop their own abilities to respond to art, design, and culture through creative pedagogies. Our thematic tours and related workshops transform M+ into an interactive platform for educators and students to explore and experiment with the creative processes of various disciplines. Students will be able to understand the relationship between art and design, museum objects, society, and everyday life by exploring the M+ Collections.
Our programmes emphasise cross-curricular approaches in response to school subjects such as Visual Arts and General Studies. This experiential learning outside a conventional classroom setting aims to arouse students’ interests in constructing knowledge through hands-on and minds-on activities.
Through our programmes, students will:
- Deepen relationships with their surroundings and formulate perspectives on discussing, interpreting, and making contemporary artworks and design objects
- Understand how artists and makers turn creative ideas into reality and how they contribute to society
- Experience object-based learning and develop creative thinking and communication skills to articulate their thoughts about what they can imagine and see
- See art and design as a medium to build self-esteem and empathy towards others

Special Arrangement under the Prevention and Control of Disease Regulation
If activities must be conducted in smaller groups following the Prevention and Control of Disease Regulation (Prohibition on Group Gathering Cap. 599G), thematic tours will be available in a self-guided format. M+ will provide learning toolkits and activity worksheets for school groups to explore the galleries after the groups attend an introductory briefing on the M+ Collections led by an M+ Educator.
Under this special arrangement, M+ can arrange an onsite briefing session and location scouting for teachers according to their needs. Teachers can familiarise themselves with the museum environment and facilities. We will also provide a content overview of activities in order to prepare for the students' arrival to the museum. In addition, please plan to have additional teachers and parents to accompany students during their visits to ensure their safety and a smooth running of self-guided activities. We recommend a 1:7 ratio of teachers and parents to students.
