Creative Classrooms: Education Program

Townsville City Council - through our two peak gallery venues Perc Tucker Regional Gallery and Pinnacles Gallery - offer a broad spectrum of educational opportunities which encourage students to develop their observational and reflective skills to enhance their understanding of the visual arts; and provide professional development opportunities for you, the educators.

Education resources and Gallery tours are designed for groups of all ages, with direct reference to the Department of Education and Training, Queensland Visual Arts Syllabus (2009/2010); Essential Learnings 1-10 (2007 & 2009) and Senior Syllabus (2007).

Artist-In-Schools

The Artist-In-Schools program organises artists to work with students within schools for an exhibition outcome at Perc Tucker Regional Gallery or Pinnacles Gallery. We employ local artists who transfer skills to both students and teachers, encouraging the development of visual arts. Your students are introduced to the Gallery environment, and are able to view their works.

School/Group tours

We provide guided school/group tours and facilitated workshops upon request for all exhibitions. To book your school or group’s next visit, please contact us directly.

Education resource kits

Education resources are available for each main exhibition and are designed to assist you in providing learning outcomes for students that link with the curriculum and the themes explored within the works on display.

Education resource kits from previous exhibitions can be accessed by contacting us, and are also uploaded to our ISSUU page.
