Education Program

Griffith Regional Art Gallery is committed to providing enriching and unique opportunities for students and teachers to engage with visual arts. Our facility allows students and teachers to view artwork up close developing a more comprehensive meaning of scale, texture and processes. Students are encouraged to engage with the work using their imagination, interpreting meaning, critiquing and forming an appreciation for the work and/or artist.

We are happy to work with educators and cater to the needs of their students, contact us to discuss what the Gallery can offer or learn more below.
