The Gallery houses a treasure trove of stimulus material for Primary children that can be linked to numerous themes in the classroom.
Students are encouraged to build a skill set which allows them to identify and describe key features of art works from their own and other cultures. They are then encouraged to select and respond to that information and generate ideas that inform their own work.
Programs can be customized to meet individual school's needs or school groups can choose from the following workshops.
Secondary programs are linked to current exhibitions and aim to generate ideas that promote dialogue on a range of contemporary, historical and cultural subjects and themes.
In addition the Gallery hosts annually a VCE Studio Arts Forum which covers Unit 3-Art Industry Contexts, and the annual Hamilton TOPS Exhibition which showcases the best VCE Art works and portfolios from several Colleges in the Western District.
