Education at Wagga Wagga Art Gallery
Wagga Wagga Art Gallery's Art Education programs are designed to help engage primary, high school and tertiary students about the world of art!
Whether it's an introduction your group needs or immersion in a particular medium, we're a unique and comprehensive resource. For both touring and in-house Gallery initiatives we can provide you with links to the syllabus, professional development days and education kits. Our fantastic workshops are extremely popular and we provide online resources as well.
The most anticipated exhibition on the education calendar is almost here! ARTEXPRESS officially launches on Friday 12 July at 6:00pm in the main gallery. The exhibition will continue until Sunday 15 September. This is good news as it means there are 9 weeks to view the exhibition.
To help with the bookings at this time please ensure you call the gallery. Due to the large volume of groups at this time each group will be greeted and helped to access the exhibition.
There is also a Students Drawing Workshop on Wednesday 17 July and a Teachers Day on Friday 19 July in association with ARTEXPRESS. The bookings for these workshops are through the Arts Unit, Susanne Jones, phone: 9550 9121.
Get the most out of your visit by taking a guided tour with trained volunteer gallery guides. Guided tours are available on request by contacting the Gallery two weeks in advance of your tour, and are free of charge.
Participating in tours with gallery guides is a great way for students to expand skills in teamwork and communication, share points of view, and understand the creative processes in visual arts practices.
We'll even help your teachers plan visits to meet a specific theme or curriculum outcome, or your group can self-guide at no cost.
Call us today on (02) 6926 9660 to make a group booking.
