The Weyburn Art Gallery is open during the regular hours at the Weyburn Credit Union Spark Centre, and it's free to check out the exhibitions.

There are options for getting guided tours or even just discussing the art, according to City Curator Regan Lanning.

"You can just contact the front desk of the Spark Centre and we can set something up," she suggested, noting, however, "Usually I'm here and if I hear someone have a question, I will pop out of my office like the Batman seeing the bat signal in the sky, and I will swoop out and help them understand what they're looking at."

Lanning said the schools do tours of the gallery often.

"Especially Legacy Park, being just down the hallway. Some classrooms come every three months because the exhibitions change every three months. I love talking  with children. I'm usually able to tie the art that we're looking at back to curriculum outcomes, and I think the kids get a lot out of it."

She said she has sent out letters to teachers to welcome them to bring their classrooms for tours of the current exhibitions: 'The Degenhart Effect' and 'Spirit of Nature - Looking Beyond Yourself'.

"We've sent out letters of offer to our local elementary schools and the junior high and high school, offering free gallery tours on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays," she explained. "We're just waiting to hear back from teachers on that. There are some activities that came along with this exhibition that I am excited to do with the kids. One, for example is that every one of these pieces [in Spirit of Nature] has a hidden spirit bead,  hidden in it somewhere. The kids will really take a good look at the pieces and try to find all of the spirit beads."
