Galleries Education and Outreach Service
The Gallery’s Education Service is delivered by two part-time Education Officers funded externally by the Catholic Education Office (Ballarat Diocese) and through the Victorian State Government’s Department of Education and Early Childhood Development’s Strategic Partnership Program. Currently a partnership arrangement with Deakin University also supports the Gallery’s education programs.
The Gallery’s Education program reaches approximately 3,200 pre-school, primary, secondary and tertiary students annually. The program is delivered to both Government and Independent schools, from Portland to Edenhope to Colac. The program involves various components including school curriculum programs, gallery tours, artist workshops, special events, student exhibitions, an outreach program providing visual art opportunity for students without the resources to visit the Gallery or in conjunction with a Gallery visit, professional development programs for teachers, intensive days for VCE students, and a gifted students program.
The presence of higher education art and design courses delivered in Warrnambool through Deakin University and the South West Institute of TAFE generates a considerable level of artistic practice within the local community. The Gallery plays a key role as a resource and support for and promoter of visual art practitioners working in the region.
Support for the Education and Outreach Service may be given as a one-off donation or form part of an annual giving program.
Donations to the Foundation are tax deductible. Donors will be publicly recognised through the WAG Foundation membership at the relevant level of giving. Major gifts will be given accreditation in perpetuity for any works acquired.
