Education, Public Programs and Just for Kids
The Central Goldfields Art Gallery offers education programs for kindergarten, school children and community groups.
The programs are linked to the Victorian Government Early Year’s Development and Education Framework for kindergarten children and our school based program is linked to school curriculum.
Public programs, including artist talks, are also offered throughout the year.
