Excursions focused on European art for Years K–6 include an Art Adventure Tour called Let’s look back: every picture tells a story.


You can design your own excursion for Years 7–12, focusing on the European collection. We also offer tours and resources for French and Italian language students.

Access programs

Art Adventure Tours for Years K–6 mentioned above are also available with a registered Auslan interpreter for deaf and hearing impaired students.

Students in Years K–12 with an intellectual disability can join our Starting with Art tour and workshop, including one titled Courtly magic, which uses grand paintings to introduce a colourful cast of characters from history, and Mastering Impressionism, which explores the work of the French Impressionists.

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 European 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 Art speaks: Italian. These are highly useful resources, even when all the works featured are not on display.
