The Artists in Schools program creates the opportunity for practicing professional artists to work with young people in Victorian primary and secondary schools. Artists may work in any art form. The funding available to schools for projects in 2015 is $10,000 for projects commencing after 13 April 2015.


In My Day
An absolute gem, this little animation produced by Natimuk Primary school students and animator Dave Jones in 2004, captures a different world as the town’s older citizens tell what life was like when they were at school back in 1934. The images drawn by the students are simply wonderful. After you have watched this, check out In My Day The Inside Story, to see how it was made and the impact it had on the town.
In My Day was funded through the Artists in Schools program.
