The Schools and Learning team is excited to work with ākonga across all learning areas in Years 7-13. Our skilled educators facilitate and support student-led responses to, and conversations about, artworks to deepen appreciation and understanding of art and its contexts.

Choose from a range of programmes tailored to your subject area and students’ needs, interests and learning objectives to develop critical and creative thinking skills, while enriching your local curriculum (ELC).
