Accessible Learning with Art

Mon–Fri, 10am, 11.30am, 1pm & 2.30pm
All Levels
NGV International & NGV Australia

The NGV is for everyone. Art and design can inspire authentic and meaningful learning experiences for students of all levels, however we understand that some students require a more individualised approach to make this possible. This introduction to the NGV supports students with diverse learning abilities — and their teachers— to feel more confident and empowered to visit the Gallery. Students will be encouraged to creatively respond to works in the Collection and to make connections between what they see and their own lives and experiences.

This program is designed to be flexible. Prior to your visit, an NGV educator will be in contact to discuss program options, including suggested artworks and activities, and sensory and visual supports to suit the needs of your group.

Students will:

  • Observe and respond to art and design from the NGV Collection.
  • Discover new ideas and thoughts in a safe and supported environment.
  • Develop and practice social-emotional skills through supported learning opportunities within the Gallery context

Duration: Up to 60 minutes
Cost: $10.50 per student
