Arts and education go hand in hand. Encouraging creativity and artistic expression is core to developing passionate, bright young people who think laterally, view the world with open eyes and see beauty in the everyday.
AGWA's education team strives to foster a greater understanding and knowledge of the visual arts and aims to develop passion in learners by offering unique and stimulating experiences for students of all ages.
The Gallery's education programs include guided tours of the State Art Collection and special exhibitions with knowledgeable and experienced Voluntary Gallery Guides that cover a range of stimulating and engaging themes and ideas. In addition to tours, AGWA offer practical hands-on workshops with experienced and engaging arts educators that focus on themes, build on skills and most importantly, allow students to have fun while being creative!
Tours and workshops link with the Western Australian Curriculum, covering learning areas that include Humanities, English, Science and Technology, in addition to the Visual Arts.
AGWA educates with sensitivity to cultural differences, cultural identity, an awareness of the rich cultural history of Indigenous Australians and WA's geographical location in the South East Asian region.
The Gallery also produces comprehensive resources for many key exhibitions, helping students and teachers access and interpret themes and ideas within art shows.
A range of professional learning opportunities for teachers is also provided including exclusive exhibition previews and professional learning workshops.

It's not widely known that paperclay is now a third of all classroom and studio clay used in WA, a fifth in New Zealand, and in the US, use is doubling each year.Compared to conventional clay, paper clay dries quicker, with less cracking, is less accident prone, dry repairs are possible, requires no (or only a single) glaze firing, and is available from all traditional clay manufacturers and suppliers. Not surprisingly, alert educators from all levels are crying out for information on how to use and teach it. Luckily for us, local ceramic artist and educator Graham Hay is recognised internationally as a pioneer in this paper clay and in teaching it. He co-lead the First International Paperclay Symposium (Hungary 2004), the 1st Nordic Paperclay Symposium and workshop (2007), the 1st US Paperclay Conference (Seattle 2009), and the 1st US Paperclay Symposium (LA 2010). He was invited to speak and demonstrate at the 1999, 2003 and 2012 Australian National Ceramics Conferences, at the 2007 US National Council Education for the Ceramic Arts, and the 2012 Australian National Visual Arts Education Conference. Aside from this he has given over 70 workshops in WA schools at all levels and with teacher groups. His website www.grahamhay.com.au is highly inspirational and informative, receiving over 1.1m hits per annum.
