Asian-focused excursions for Years K-6 include an Art Adventure Tour entitled Conversations with Asia which explores works on display from the Asian collection, as well as practical workshops with Asian artists. These are also available with a registered Auslan interpreter for deaf and hearing impaired students.


You can design your own excursion for Years 7–12, focusing on the Asian collection in general or Indian, Chinese and Japanese works in particular, and perhaps incorporating an Asian artist workshop. We also offer tours for Chinese, Japanese and Korean language students.

Education materials

Children’s trails are designed to engage young children with selected objects and images in the Gallery.

Kids audio tour includes works from our Asian collection among others. Check the ‘more information’ links from each of the works to see if it is currently on display. Students and teachers can download files onto their own MP3 players or listen online.

From the Gallery Shop

A series of A4, loose-leaf education kits on various aspects of the Gallery’s collection can be bought from the Gallery Shop, including Adventures in Asia and Art speaks: Japanese. These are highly useful resources, even when all the works featured are not on display.
