Collection themes, Australian Awareness Days, online workshops and AGSA Art School

Our extensive range of resources help students to examine, explore and respond to works of art and the concepts they evoke. They can be used during your visit to the Gallery and in classroom discussions.

The resources cover major exhibitions, selected artists represented in our collection and key tour themes. The resources suggest activities that link with the Australian Curriculum.
