Our Primary School Programmes provide students with diverse Life-wide Learning experiences. Students will discover how art and design, museum collections, and the society are closely related to our daily lives through creative pedagogies. They will also develop their abilities in culture and creativity.
Our thematic tours and related, extended workshops transform M+ into an interactive learning platform for artists, designers, 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 and actual practice in response to school subjects such as Language, Visual Arts, and General Studies. This experiential learning outside a conventional classroom setting aims to develop students’ interests in constructing cultural 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 Self-Directed Learning Toolkits for school groups to explore the galleries after the groups attend an introductory briefing on the M+ Collections led by an M+ Educator. 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 1:10 ratio of teachers and parents to students.
M+ has been identified as a specified premise of the Vaccine Pass. Children aged 5 to 11 are required to comply with the vaccination requirements under the Vaccine Pass arrangements for entering specified premises. To prepare the visits of school group, teacher-in-charge is encouraged to ensure all participants are eligible for entering specified premises of the Vaccine Pass and collect their electronic or printed vaccination records or Exemption Certificates for checking during group admission to the museum building.
