Past Educational programmes 

The purpose of school workshops was to introduce visual art and art appreciation to as many learners as possible using the Museum collection and also to supplement the art studies curriculum for Grade R-9.

On arrival, learners were given a brief background of the Art Museum and its role as an institution.  After the discussion, learners were taken inside the museum to look and talk about what they see, they were taken on a guided tour of the exhibitions.  

A few artworks on show were selected and used in the lesson. 

Some Schools came with their on worksheets.

After the guided tour, learners entered the education workshop area where the art lesson was presented.
