Post a letter or buy lunch with art? You do it every day.

From concept to final product, experience the creative process, the technical skill and the sheer artistry that underlies every series of Canadian stamps and bank notes.

The following programs will help students understand and appreciate the high level of skill as well as the advanced technology required to produce secure bank notes and stamps. Students will look closely at the designs, images and patterns of bank notes and stamps, learn basic principles behind engraving and intaglio printing and then put those principles to practical use by creating their own versions.

All programs are available in English or in French. Download the teacher overview by clicking one of the links below:
