Our thematic Foundation programmes give students the opportunity to build knowledge and skills across the curriculum through meaningful engagement with art.

Creative and critical thinking, and interpersonal skill development is encouraged through lively discussion and activity. Each programme includes two lessons: one in the Gallery spaces, exploring three to five artworks, and another in the Studio, making art in response to the programme theme.

Included with these programmes are free term-long teaching resources for Levels 1–2 or 3–4.

Our Primary programmes are undergoing some changes which means that this programme will not be offered during Term 3 2017.

Gallery Explorers

Welcome to the wonderful world of the Gallery ... a place to explore and describe artworks, experiment with ideas and materials – and to create!

This programme is written especially for juniors. It uses play-based activities to help children creatively and critically make meaning of their own and others' art through knowledge from the Arts, English and beyond.

In the gallery spaces, educators will introduce a range of activities, including storytelling, art making and drama to help students describe and interpret what they see when looking at artworks.

In the studio, students will experiment with ideas and materials inspired by their visit to the Gallery, and create their own art pieces.

Age groups: Years 0–2
Maximum daily attendance: 60 students,
Cost: Per student $8, Teacher/adult helper free
