Castlemaine Art Gallery and Historical Museum provides a rich learning environment for students of all ages.
Our significant educational resources include our Permanent Collection with its focus on Australian representational works; our Temporary Exhibition Program with exhibitions by contemporary and historical artists changing every month; our Historical Museum with artefacts from the Gold Rush Era, local indigenous history, the evolution of Castlemaine as a cultural centre; our Conservation Studio, the only one of it’s kind in Regional Victoria; our Education Officer Kate Stones and Conservator Kirsten McKay are available to give talks; many local artists are happy to give talks and workshops; and we are also able to conduct practical workshops.
Students can combine visits to the gallery with many other local venues from historic homes to old mining villages to create a fascinating day or week program suitable for camps.
Kate Stones, the Education Officer tailors programs to suit the specific needs of each individual group. Our Education Program specialises in extended programs for local schools and other educational groups. We offer an extended curatorial program for VCE Studio Art students, and are currently undertaking an extended Art and Literacy program called Local Landscapes for year 5/6 students. This program includes a visit to the gallery, ‘en plein air’ painting workshop, exhibition at the gallery and an exchange with a school from another Region.
To make a booking or an enquiry please contact Kate Stones on the Gallery’s main number, 03 5472 2292 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Education Program has been generously supported by the Ian Potter Foundation.
