In 'hands-on' sessions in the Gallery, students find out about works of art in the Gallery's collection, how best to display them, why they are acquired and more. As one of our students commented 'where else in Australia, would I be able to study Art History and attend classes given by the Director and Curators of the Art Gallery'. Students also participate in the exhibitions' public program's events.
