Creative Learning

Geelong Arts Centre's Education Program

The Creative Learning program includes workshops and performances for kindergarten, primary and secondary school students.

Our Creative Learning team have been working hard to develop engaging resources that you can use to build lesson plans, inspire student curiosity, creativity, and ignite meaningful conversations in the classroom.

Where Creativity Meets At Home: Creative Learning!

We are here to share stories: authentic, cultural, empowering and challenging, from experts and community members.

Our resources focus on these three key cross-curricular priority areas:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander History and Cultures
  • Sustainability
  • Asia and Australia’s Engagement with Asia

Dates and times for all Creative Learning activity will be shared through the newsletter, as well as here on our website.
