The Robert Hannaford learning program assists educators in supporting students’ exploration, engagement, and understanding of the exhibition through the theme of portraiture. The learning experiences are designed to encourage students to take a closer look at selected works of art and to learn about the artist’s development through portraiture, and to compare and contrast Hannaford’s works with masterworks from the Gallery’s collection.
Learning programs are aligned with the Australian Curriculum: Visual Arts learning area, and connect to the general capabilities and cross curriculum priority areas.

Exhibition and Studio activity visits available for educators, Early Years and F-12 students.
