Learn

We offer a wide range of accessible programs for all ages. To discuss ways to connect with the gallery, please contact Dr Janice Lally, Academic and Public Programs Curator, at janice.lally@uwa.edu.au.

School

Education kits

Our education kits relating to the exhibitions provide educational resources for K-12 teachers and students. Aligned with WA School Curriculum and Standards Authority outcomes, they include context for research across curricula including Visual Arts, Design, Humanities and Social Studies along with art tasks. 

Art in a Box

Art in a Box takes works of art from The University of Western Australia out to schools in Western Australia – direct from the Gallery and into the classroom.

Art in a Box provides dedicated student engagement with artworks, which teachers select in consultation with LWAG staff. For more information please contact Lee Kinsella, Special Projects Curator and Curator of the Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art, at lee.kinsella@uwa.edu.au.

Scheduling School Visits

Come for a visit and learn first-hand how artworks and objects can help to broaden how we understand ourselves and the world around us. Our staff can provide an introduction to the gallery and a tour of the current exhibitions, as well as work with you to relate the visit to your teaching.

Tours can provide opportunities for developing visual literacy, critical thinking, self-reflection and creativity, as well as engaging with history, society, culture and art-making processes. For more information about scheduling a visit, contact Dr Janice Lally, Academic and Public Programs Curator, at janice.lally@uwa.edu.au.

University

Dr Harold Schenberg Study Centre

The Dr Harold Schenberg Study Centre is located within the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery.

The study centre space is available for use by UWA staff and students engaged in research, teaching and professional activities related to the University’s cultural collections and exhibition program. It is ideal for object-based learning workshops, seminars, lectures and tutorials.

Through the study centre, academics and students can arrange access to artworks and objects from the collections and on display in the gallery. This provides unique opportunities for research and teaching across a wide range of areas. For more information, contact Dr Janice Lally, Academic and Public Programs Curator, at janice.lally@uwa.edu.au

Guided class visits

Our staff are available to contribute to class visits, lead tours, deliver lectures and facilitate educational sessions on current museum practices.

For assistance in developing material for class visits to the galleries and/or the Dr Harold Schenberg Study Centre, please contact Dr Janice Lally, Academic and Public Programs Curator, at janice.lally@uwa.edu.au. To guarantee availability, we advise you book before the start of each semester.

Student opportunities

A position at LWAG is an excellent opportunity to gain hands-on, professional experience working in the arts and to contribute ideas to your University gallery.

Students can apply to be a member of the newly launched LWAG Student Advisory Committee and take on a leadership role within the gallery or to work alongside our staff in a number of different Work-Integrated Learning placements. New positions are announced at the beginning of each semester. For more information, please contact Megan Hyde, Audience Development Manager, at megan.hyde@uwa.edu.au.

Art Writing Prize

The Art Writing Prize is an award for visual art writing in Western Australia open to all.

The award is supported through the collaboration of LWAG with Westerly magazine and UWA Publishing, and aims to encourage creative and scholarly responses by emerging writers to exhibitions and art exhibited at LWAG, including works from the Berndt Museum of Anthropology, the UWA Art Collection and the Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art.

Publications

LWAG regularly publishes catalogues for its exhibitions. Our exhibition catalogues often feature a curator's introduction, images of artworks, a list of works and more.
