Think! Contemporary

EDUCATION PROGRAMME FOR SCHOOLS ONLY

  • SAM at 8Q

First developed together with Haig Girls’ School, the Think! Contemporary Programme is a multi-visit, museum-based school programme that advocates learning through art at SAM. Integrating school curricula with museum visits, the programme employs artworks from various ongoing SAM exhibitions as a primary resource for classroom teaching and learning of Art, Character and Citizenship Education, English, Science and Social Studies.
 
This programme culminates in an exhibition at the end of the year, supported by SAM.
