We love seeing the ways your students are engaging with and responding to works of art in our collection. If you are using the making and responding activities suggested in our online resources or using our Curiosity Cards to start your lessons or adapting something you learnt in one of our workshops into your classroom- we want to see it!

Selection criteria
We would love to see examples of student work where students have responded to the themes or ideas in an artist's work rather than copies of the artist's work. Take a look at our resources for ideas or check out the 'using artists as a starting point' flowchart in our teacher tools.

If your submission does not make it onto our online gallery, please don’t be discouraged! It may simply be that we have had similar work submitted recently.

Student works of art selected for our online student gallery will appear on our website and may feature on our social media platforms, catalogues or publications. Please ensure you have been given permission from your students prior to submitting examples.

Where possible only send images of the student's work of art. If you are sending photos where children's faces are visible please ensure you have obtained the necessary approvals from parents and caregivers.
