Education and Learning
Wagga Wagga Art Gallery's Art Education programs are designed to engage primary, high school and tertiary students about the world of art!
Whether it's an introduction your group needs or immersion in a particular medium, we're a unique and comprehensive resource. For both touring and in-house Gallery initiatives we can provide you with links to the syllabus, professional development days and education kits. Our fantastic workshops are extremely popular and we provide online resources as well.

KaPOW! Kids and Print Outreach Workshop
A tailored program of activities that takes place within the school environments.This educational outreach program draws on Wagga Wagga Art Gallery's nationally significant collections the Margaret Carnegie Print Collection and the National Art Glass Collection as the beginnings for students to create artworks from. The entire school participates with students, teachers and support staff benefiting from the program. A kit remains with the school along with a printing press for 6 months, proudly sponsored by ADFAS Riverina, to enable the continuation of the program.
KaPOW! is rolled out twice each year to schools within the local government area and once to schools outside this area subject to sponsorship.

Get the most out of your visit by taking a guided tour with trained volunteer gallery guides. Guided tours are available on request by contacting the Gallery two weeks in advance of your tour, and are free of charge.
Our guides are passionate in sharing their love of the Gallery’s collections and exhibitions with members of the public. They are knowledgeable and professional and have established a strong reputation for their dedicated service to the community.
We offer services for all interested groups. School groups participating in tours with gallery guides is a great way for students to expand skills in teamwork and communication, share points of view, and understand the creative processes in visual arts practices.
We'll even help your teachers plan visits to meet a specific theme or curriculum outcome, or your group can self-guide at no cost.
Call us today on (02) 6926 9660 or send a request through on firstname.lastname@example.org to make a group booking.
In addition free public tours looking at out extraordinary exhibitions are a great way to discover the depth and beauty of what’s on offer at the Gallery.
