About secondary education

We are excited to work with Secondary ākonga to explore our Gallery, collection and exhibitions. Our curriculum linked activities ignite personal and collaborative responses to artworks and their contexts, to engage ākonga in critical thinking, reflective learning and creative responses.

We offer a range of programmes for ākonga across all learning areas in Years 9-13. Our skilled educators facilitate and support student-led responses to, and conversations about, artworks, to deepen appreciation and understanding of art and its contexts and ideas. Exploring the connections between style, media, processes, contexts, meanings and personal responses, ākonga will develop and practise critical and creative thinking while enjoying new experiences and insights.

Explore the Gallery’s whenua, architecture and art works through a range of programmes  tailored to your subject area and students’ needs, interests and learning objectives.

Please see below suggested programmes for the following subject areas: Art History, Classical Studies, English, History and Visual Arts.

Not your subject area? Email us here and we’ll see how we can adapt programming or develop a new programme that works better for you.

NEW: Media and Processes + Studio programme – 2 hours

This Gallery and Studio programme focuses on paintings in our ‘Romancing the Collection’ exhibition. In the Gallery spaces, we will analyse and develop appreciation of the media and processes used by Gottfried Lindauer in the Māori Portraits, selected impressionist painters and artists working in other styles. In the Studio, ākonga will explore and practise different paint media and processes, in relation to the works examined in the Gallery. This new 2-hour programme is ideal for Visual Arts, Design, Art History and English ākonga, who want to develop an appreciation of how media and processes create effects and develop meanings.
