Creative Edge: My First Field Trip

How can a field trip to Harbourfront Centre inspire a love of the arts or encourage students to visit galleries, museums and cultural centres within their local community? 

Program Description

A new experience developed with the needs of kindergarten students in mind, My First Field Trip program gives students a taste of what Harbourfront Centre has to offer! This program will be delivered in three 45–60-minute sections: Visual Arts, Performing Arts and Campus Walk!
