How does the partnership work?

The partnership’s interdependence brings online art learning to life!

The Mendel and MacKenzie Art Galleries are providing access to their significant collections of local, national and international art. They bring their technical and aesthetic experience with major artworks to influence the excellence of the final offerings of the ARTSask project. Their professional expertise is brought to bear on the development of the online extensions to learning via theme-based interactive studies.

The Saskatchewan Ministry of Education is internationally acknowledged as a leader in the development of K-12 Arts Education. Its work serves as a model for curriculum development in provinces across Canada and elsewhere in the world. The Saskatchewan Ministry of Education has influenced the development of the interactive learning activities found on the ARTSask website through the foundational objectives and Common Essential Learnings of the Saskatchewan Core Curriculum. The specialized knowledge of the team of Saskatchewan Ministry of Education consultants has been invaluable in the development of the learning activities, field testing and evaluation of the website.

The University of Regina supports the partnership through its commitment of facilities, infrastructure and the expertise of personnel designated to co-direct and provide leadership in the creation of the ARTSask project. The University of Regina website server will host the online website and ensure its maintenance.
