Leighton Art Centre offers virtual Field Trips


One of the best parts of growing up in Alberta is the school field trips. With Alberta’s vibrant history, the possibilities were endless. One destination, tucked away in the foothills near Millarville, Alberta, there’s the Leighton Art Centre, a historical house rich with culture, science and art.

Like all classrooms, the Centre has adapted, moving to virtual field trips to share art activities along with Alberta’s rich plant-based history.

CKUA’s Kate Stevens sits down with Coreen Thornhill, one of the senior arts and nature educators at the Centre to talk about the importance of arts immersion and the move to a virtual classroom.
