Art Spark

Devonport Regional Gallery’s after-school art program shines a bright light on creativity!

Set in the Gallery, Art Spark offers a unique experience for Primary and Secondary students wishing to further their creative thinking, and develop an appreciation of the visual arts. The workshops are presented by a practising artist who is able to bring out each participant’s unique style and interests.

No prior skill or knowledge is required, just a healthy sense of curiosity and desire to create. With only ten places available, Jessie offers a focused, individual and tailored approach for participants to explore their ideas and artistic practice.

Little Aesthetics: Collections & Recollections

Delve deep into the extensive Robinson Collection at the Devonport Regional Gallery in Term 3 as we showcase a range of prints and relics from this invaluable archive, celebrating 20 years of the Robinson Collection and 90 years since the family studio opened its doors to North West communities.
Collections hold numerous and varied items, and the Robinson Collection is no exception! Looking beyond the prints and negatives, discover items and equipment used by the Robinson family throughout their operation.
Students will also explore the exhibition and encounter the power of photography to take us elsewhere. What may these photographs make you think of? And, what do they make you feel?
