School Programs

The Literature Centre has a range of workshops for students from Pre-Primary to Year 12 and professional learning workshops for teachers.

Literature Workshops


EXCURSIONS

Literature Workshops are usually held in the Centre's galleries within an exhibition of original artwork from an Australian picture book.  Each term, there are at least four picture books exhibited which may include drafts, research material, photographs, storyboards, dummy books, and preliminary artwork.   

Workshops are interactive and will have students engrossed by explaining the illustrations and predicting the storyline.  The Centre's Education Officers share the journey of the book from its beginning to the final book format: through questions, discussions, drama, writing, and drawing.

Current Book Exhibitions:  Find out which picture book exhibitions are available this term.  Click through to the Book Exhibitions section of this website.

Suitable:  Pre Primary to Year 12.  Conducted by the Centre’s Education Officers.
