My (Learning) Gallery

Behind the scenes

The latest feature on this website, My Gallery, is such a fun and fabulous new tool to create sets of works from our collection. We've created a My Gallery Education section – check it out!




We show you what we've been teaching local schools as part of our outreach programme, for example lessons on Pacific Printmaking and Abstract Art.

Though examples from our collection, we have set up ways to learn about some basic elements in art, for example Pattern, Tone, Shape, Line, Space and Colour.

We cover the artist's medium with painting and printmaking techniques, photography tips and sculptural styles.

You can also learn about The Canterbury School Style and, coming soon, Key Stages in the growth of our Collection.

Have fun exploring, learning and making your own My Gallery set.
