Education Resources

Our free resources include exhibition kits, workshop kits, and videos to assist students and teachers in learning about contemporary art.


General Resources

Curators, Galleries, Conservation: VCE: Arts Industry Contexts (VCE)


VCE Video Resources: Artist Interviews

These resources have been developed for VCE Art studies. Together these four resources address the Analytical Frameworks of Structural, Personal, Cultural and Contemporary. They are intended to introduce students to these frameworks and how they can be used to gain understanding of the meaning and messages conveyed in artworks.

These resources are also relevant to VCE Studio Arts, detailing Gertrude Studio Artists' inspiration and techniques, exploration and concepts, and studio process.
