  • Each year the Art Gallery of South Australia stages innovative

    and engaging family programs, laying the foundation for a strong

    and lasting association between children and the visual arts.

    These are some of the diverse programs we offer to around

    40,000 school aged children who visit us each year :

    The School Holiday Art & Craft Program is one of the Gallerys most popular activities, giving children the freedom

    to exercise their imagination while providing parents with a

    high quality activity to entertain their children. These one hour

    sessions, guided by expert tutors, are held daily during school

    holiday periods and have previously included topics such as: Pop

    Goes the Easel - Paint with animated colour and zany images and

    Flower Power - Still life painting of Australian fl ora.

    Eye Spy Club is our Sunday afternoon program of interactive tours where little super-sleuths can hunt for clues in works of art.

    This special activity is presented twice a month by the fabulous

    Eye Spy Detectives.

    Family Drop-in-Days are held once a month and encourage families to enjoy the Gallery together. Children can take part

    in free art and craft activities and families may visit special

    exhibitions for a discounted admission price.

    The Annual Family Fun Day is a great occasion when the entire Gallery is buzzing with activity. Over a thousand families

    turn out each year for a fun afternoon of art and craft, family

    trails, music, roving performers, face painting, sausage sizzles,

    childrens displays and more.

    Eyes On is the free, do-it-yourself Gallery trail for the whole family to enjoy. Eyes On helps adults visiting the Gallery with

    children, offering questions, puzzles, clues and quirky pieces

    of information to get you thinking and talking about the ar t

    on display.

    ACTIVITIES FOR CHILDREN & FAMILIESSponsorship of any of the activities for children and families not

    only allows the Gallery to provide these wonderful activities

    for the community, but also offers outstanding benefi ts to the

    sponsor, including exceptional marketing and cross promotional

    opportunities and exclusive corporate hospitality privileges.

  • Public Programs are the events and activities through which the Art Gallery of South Australia speaks to its audience and reaches out to the community.

    Our goal is to introduce people of all ages and backgrounds to art and culture and to make the Gallery an important part of their lives. Each year we stage a dynamic and broad range of public programs designed for leisure, learning and for the sheer love of art. Many events are free.

    The Art Gallery calendar is full of events such as:

    Lunchtime Talks We hold free lunchtime talks throughout the year so visitors can feast their eyes and feed their mind. Bite-sized talks given by our Director, Curators, artists, experts and celebrities introduce visitors to new ways of looking at selected works of art.

    Guided ToursThe Art Gallery Guides lead free tours of our vast collection twice daily, helping people to better understand the works on display and enhancing the visitors experience. Specialist tours are also offered for private groups and during temporary exhibitions.

    Culture DaysArt is a great way for people to learn about other cultures and our Culture Days highlight regional art, music, food and customs to complement special displays and exhibitions. These are fun family days with a difference.

    Public Lectures The Art Gallery is proud to be a centre for creative thought in Adelaide and our numerous Public Lectures held throughout the year provide a forum for debate, discussion and sharing of ideas on art, culture and society.

    Families & ChildrenWe believe that all children should have the opportunity to learn about art and have fun in the process. Our many activities for children and families include art and craft sessions, topic trails, family drop-in-days, the Eye Spy Club and more.
