Professional enrichment

Teachers enjoying TMAG displays

A variety of workshops and professional enrichment opportunities are available for teachers and community service professionals.

These opportunities include workshops with guest artists, exhibition previews and thematically-focused training and information sessions. These workshops help professionals in the education and community service sectors to make the most of what the Museum has to offer, and help to increase engagement with visual arts, sciences, humanities and cultural heritage.

“We all found it very motivating and came back to school inspired to follow up many of the ideas...”
Carey Bourke, teacher, Mt Nelson Primary School

“Lots of the teachers who attended your workshops last week said that they were the best professional development they had ever attended”
Merryn Bolger, teacher, Cape Barren Island School

2014 Professional Enrichment Sessions

Contemporary Art – Down and Dirty

Term 4: Contemporary painter Neil Haddon ‘Within the silhouette: detailing the void’
Neil is an artist and educator whose striking paintings have been exhibited regularly since 1990 and are included in many private and public collections including that of the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery. His work contrasts industrial materials and processes with traditional painting media, and in this workshop he will give insight into his industrially-inspired processes, and share a simple yet impressive painting technique for image development that can be safely done in the classroom.
