Sarjeant Gallery Te Whare O Rehua

At the Sarjeant Gallery we provide fun and engaging educational programmes for primary and secondary students. Any New Zealand state or private school can come and visit the gallery and book an educational session for their students with one of our educators. The majority of sessions include a practical component. All our programmes are free and are funded by the Ministry of Education’s LEOTC (Learning Experiences Outside the Classroom) initiative and Whanganui District Council. To make contact with the education team:

A session based on changing exhibitions at the Gallery
These programmes run in conjunction with the exhibitions and often include a practical workshop. Resource kits are available for these sessions.

A session based on artworks from the Permanent Collection of more than 5000 items
These programmes make use of works from the Sarjeant's permanent collection and include a practical session. Resource kits are available for these sessions.

A session based on teacher requests
Teachers ask for a new programme which is developed using the Gallery's Permanent Collection and becomes part of the permanent programmes on offer. Requests from teachers in the past have been: Birds, New Zealand Flora and Fauna, Observational Drawing, Impressionism and Animals.
