Gertrude Contemporary strives to build relationships with schools, universities and community groups in Melbourne and beyond. Each tour of the gallery spaces and studios focuses on the nurturing of observational and analytical skills of each group via the encouragement of discussion around individual art objects and the exhibition as a whole. Tours include a discussion of the current exhibition as well as a brief overview of Gertrude Contemporary. A visit with a current studio artist in their studio is an optional extra.
Catering to each school’s curriculum, programs for students include guided tours and other options. For all guided programs Gertrude Contemporary suggests that the teacher or class guide discusses the intended outcomes of the visit as well as the class’s curricular needs and interests.
Cost: Guided exhibition tours also include a brief history of Gertrude Contemporary and are free of charge. These tours must be booked ahead of time.
Extras: An exhibition tour can also include a studio visit with a current Gertrude Studio Artist. The benefits include a Q and A session as well as the exposure to a ‘working’ studio practice.
