Children’s Art Workshop

School holiday Programs

During each Victorian School holiday break the gallery offers a fun learning experience for children with a program of art workshops.

Each session is unique and offers children the opportunity to explore the gallery display and then create their own unique artwork in response to what they have seen and discussed.  Activities may include painting, drawing, collage or printmaking.

 Concerts

The gallery hosts concerts throughout the year featuring the beautiful 1920′s Steinway & Sons grand piano.  Classical and Jazz concerts are amongst the favourites.

The gallery also hosts an annual concert as part of the Murray River International Music Festival held late January, early February each year.
