working together


Engaging and dynamic opportunities for Educators to connect and be inspired

Educators and their students are always welcome at Maitland Regional Art Gallery, where they can experience  free exhibitions and self-directed opportunities. We also offer seasonal programs and we can work with you to design professional development opportunities for you and your peers.

Educator Events

Throughout the year, we host a range of events specifically for teachers and educators. These include networking events, artist talks and workshops.

Professional Development

The Gallery coordinates artist-led workshops and demonstrations which provide teachers with opportunities to expand their knowledge. We invite local and national artists to present one-off special events for teachers providing valuable insight into an artist’s professional practice.

Educator briefings

Throughout the year selected exhibitions are targeted with an education focus. To coincide with the opening of the exhibition, teachers are invited to the Gallery for refreshments, to network with colleagues and hear speakers describe the educational opportunities on offer. These events are a great way to catch up with colleagues and gather resources.


Thursday 22 June, 5.00pm

Free | Bookings essential

Educators are invited to join Senior Curator Kim Blunt who will speak with Upriver Downriver artists Vera Zulumovski, Shonah Trescott and Brett McMahon about their featured works in this major exhibition.

Kim’s discussion will provide educators with insight into the artists practice, the shared themes and ideas around place and identity as well as explore personal reflections about the region these artists call home.
