School Programs

McClelland Sculpture Park+Gallery offers a wide variety of educational programs for all ages and abilities. We offer specific programs catering to a range of VCE subjects including behind the scene tours for VCE studio art.  Our education programs address the Ausvels curriculum across a range of domains.

We offer tours and workshops for all levels of schooling including Early Years.

We are happy to work with teachers to tailor programs to meet the needs of students.

Professional Development

Teacher professional development programs include behind the scene viewings, curator-led tours and artist workshops. These programs are intended to spark discussion and inspire ideas for the classroom. Programs can also be tailored to meet the needs of schools wanting whole school or team professional development.

Teachers and students are also welcome to attend our monthly Art Chat program, which includes a range of artist, curator and industry professional talks. Art Chats are free.
