Artlink to Archibald Virtual Event

As part of its Archibald Education Program, the Art Gallery of Ballarat is once again offering your students to participate in an online live workshop, supported by Gandel Philanthropy. 

This is a great opportunity for students to participate in a special Archibald Prize event.

Each session will include:

  • A virtual tour of the Archibald Prize at the Art Gallery of Ballarat with some of this year’s highlights
  • A portrait workshop with a professional artist. Limited places are available and priority will be given to schools in remote regions and schools who have students from socially and economically disadvantaged backgrounds. Pre-session classroom activities may be included to prepare the students for the workshop.Following the event schools are asked to digitally send in a selection of their finished artworks to be displayed on the Gallery website.
