|more than an art museum|
The education program at NERAM aims to facilitate and enhance the experience, knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of art in both historical and contemporary contexts.
NERAM works closely with schools, tertiary institutions and the Department of Education and Training in the development of programs.
The focus is to provide students with little or no access to the arts an opportunity to experience the wealth of delights the arts can offer.
NERAM also aims to place visual art exhibitions into social and cultural contexts through student centred interpretations and activities.
Visual literacy is developed as students interpret and respond to artworks and the comfortable, non threatening environment allows for confident exploration of ideas and feelings.
