Education at the Gallery
Outreach programs are available to schools and community groups through the Clarence Valley
The Grafton Regional Gallery strives to present an innovative education and outreach program that stimulates further enjoyment and understanding of the Gallery's exhibition programs.
The education program is comprised of guided tours, workshops, artist and curator talks, lectures, symposiums and presentations.
In addition the gallery supports and develops workshops for primary and secondary educators and promotes the merging of professional studio artists with classroom teachers, curriculum teachers and young learners.
Gallery Out & About is a mobile program conducted by specialised gallery staff who present works of art and objects from the gallery’s collections.
This outreach program is available to schools and community groups through the Clarence Valley. It enables participants to view works of art close up in a familiar environment. The interactive presentation is delivered in a 40 to 60 minute session, with larger bookings having multiple sessions.
Schools and community groups can expand their experience with a practical art workshop. Workshops will further develop skills based on content from the presentation. Work produced may lead to exhibitions in the Studio Gallery at Grafton Regional Gallery.
Works of art can be selected in consultation with teachers and venue staff and include various media, styles, periods and artists. Content can be tailored to suit school curriculum and Board of Studies syllabus. For example, senior students discussion topics can include Practices of the Artist and the Gallery, Preservation and Conservation of Art and How to Identify and Critique Art.
The cost is a $50 booking fee, $40 per hour travel time and $3 per participant, with a minimum charge of $80.
A Gallery Out & About session is the perfect way to enhance an excursion to the gallery.
