Further Information

 

The University's collections are a teaching tool and the gallery is a learning environment.

The University of Western Australia Art Collection, Berndt Museum and the Cruthers Collection of Women's Art are valuable resources for the support of curricular activities.

Teaching around the collections and exhibitions is welcome. The Gallery can offer teaching  sessions as well as provide assistance for UWA lecturers and unit coordinators to develop content around art and objects within the galleries.

Guided class visits

Curatorial staff are available to contribute to class visits, lead tours, deliver lectures and facilitate educational sessions on current museum practices.

For assistance in developing material for class visits to the galleries and/or the Dr Harold Schenberg Study Centre, please contact Dr Janice Lally, Curator of Academic and Public Programs. To guarantee availability, booking before the start of semester is advised.
