Gippsland Art Gallery’s Education Program aims to provide students with access to a broad range of cultural experiences in order to develop their skill sets in the wider community.
Available throughout the school year, the Gippsland Art Gallery’s Education Program engages Kindergarten, Primary and Secondary school students and teachers. Focusing on improving student learning outcomes, the program is designed to enable continuity with the school curriculums to support planning guidelines.
These programs focus on current exhibitions and the gallery’s collection with curriculum links to VEYLDF, the Victorian Curriculum, VCE and VCAL. The Education Program facilitates access to the gallery’s collection, temporary exhibitions, resources and specialist staff, and aims to develop meaningful and relevant learning experiences for all students.
