Education resources

The Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery offers exciting possibilities for developing learning programs for all ages - including exhibition previews for teachers, professional development programs, school visits, tours, lectures, and tailored workshops.

The gallery will offer education kits and professional development workshops for teachers for the following three exhibitions during 2018:

FLORA:
Education kits will feature three artworks from the exhibition as inspiration for art projects and can be used in class to either compliment or inform an art program, and are aligned to primary, middle and upper school curriculum outcomes for Visual Arts.

Modern Australian Landscapes:
Education kits will focus on the “difference” in approach and varied “points of view” that were expressed by artists as they explored and represented the Australian landscape during the period 1940-1960s.

The Story of the Gibb River Cattle Station
An education kit for students from K-12 will focus on the stories and characters of the Gibb River Cattle Station.
