At Hastings City Art Gallery, we offer FREE education programmes to suit students of all levels and learning abilities. Our dynamic programmes and art-making workshops encourage tamariki and rangitahi to explore their personal responses to, and deepen their understanding of, contemporary art.

All education programmes are developed and led by Gallery Educator, Kelsey Hankins, and are adapted to the gallery’s regularly changing exhibition programme. Each programme has the flexibility to be tailored to suit individual classes, and students of all different learning abilities. Talk to us about how programmes can be shaped around your learning focus and adapted to suit your students.

We also offer a series of offsite learning experiences, where we bring our interactive programmes to you! This provides a unique opportunity for students to engage with contemporary art within the familiarity of a school setting.

Each of our programmes are developed in line with the New Zealand National Curriculum, and are supported by the Ministry of Education’s LEOTC (Learning Experiences Outside The Classroom) programme.

If you would like to make an enquiry or booking, please contact Kelsey on 027 332 5496 or email kelseyh@hdc.govt.nz.
