The Art Gallery of South Australia’s extensive collection of Australian, European, North American and Asian historical and contemporary art, as well as temporary exhibitions, are a valuable and unique learning resource for teachers and students.
A specialist teacher from the Department for Education and Child Development is based in the Art Gallery to produce and deliver curriculum-linked learning programs. They are designed to connect to the Australian Curriculum, SACE and the Early Years Learning Framework through a range of learning areas including the visual arts. Programs promote:
- visual literacy
- higher order thinking and communication skills
- exploring history and cultures
- stimulating student creativity through responding and making activities.
Facilitated sessions are available for classes, or teachers can facilitate their own class visit using resources available on this web site.
