Newcastle Art Gallery has a range of services for schools.
Our trained and experienced volunteer Gallery Guides can lead your students on exciting tours of current exhibitions. We also conduct Professional Development programs including Teacher’s Previews for selected exhibitions.
There are three booking options:
Guided tours can be devised to suit your needs and may take the form of a twenty minute introductory tour up to a maximum of 45 minutes for a full guided tour. Participants are divided into small groups of 8-10 students, to allow active participation. Tours should be booked at least two weeks in advance. Special content can be included in the tour by request.
Guided tour/workshop combination
Available to small groups only (up to 24 students), this combination is usually a maximum of one hour, with students spending half an hour in a guided tour, and half an hour in a workshop which reflects the focus of a current exhibition.
An unguided visit
Just let the Gallery know when you are coming, and we can ensure that other events do not interfere with your visit.
When you contact the Gallery to make a booking for a Schools Visit, we can also advise you on how to best plan for your visit, and provide you with any relevant education resources available for the current exhibitions.

Schools can also sign up for our School’s database, to be kept up-to-date with the latest information on the Gallery’s education programs and events.
