National Gallery of Australia

Learning is at the heart of the National Gallery of Australia’s vision. The Gallery welcomes thousands of students every year to take part in experiences inspired by the collection and exhibition program and aligned with the Australian Curriculum. Tailored programs for all levels engage students creatively and critically as they look at, talk about and make art. The Tim Fairfax Learning Gallery and Studio provide a hub for hands-on experiences for students and the wider community. Bookings required.
