Learning in and through the Visual Arts
The Art Gallery of Ballarat (AGB) offers a variety of tours and
workshops designed to appeal to students at different levels of
education and promote creative thinking, visual literacy,
communication skills, confidence in being in a gallery environment
and self-confidence in personal interpretations of art. We aim to
support classroom practice and extend knowledge and understanding
of the gallery's unique permanent collection and constantly
changing temporary exhibitions.
