As part of its Archibald Education Program, the Art Gallery of Ballarat is once again offering your students to participate in an online live workshop, supported by Gandel Philanthropy.

This is a great opportunity for students to participate in a special Archibald Prize event.

Each session will include:

  • A virtual tour of the Archibald Prize at the Art Gallery of Ballarat with some of this year’s highlights
  • A portrait workshop with a professional artist. Limited places are available and priority will be given to schools in remote regions and schools who have students from socially and economically disadvantaged backgrounds. Pre-session classroom activities may be included to prepare the students for the workshop.Following the event schools are asked to digitally send in a selection of their finished artworks to be displayed on the Gallery website.
