The Studio offers specialist tours of our nationally significant collection for students and learners of all ages.

The Duldig Studio, house museum and sculpture garden offers unique object based learning opportunities exploring themes such as Vienna, Migration and Modernism or you can contact us to discuss your tour focus.

In conjunction with our current exhibition, SLAWA modernist art and design, we are offering  introductory and interactive tours of the exhibition and Studio with gallery educators tailored to the year level and exploring links to the Visual Arts curriculum.

Duldig Studio 2017 Education Program

 


Art For All Ages

We offer creative and fun educational programs informed and inspired by our art collection. 

Our Sculptor in Residence, Stefan Damschke, was a student of Karl Duldig. Stefan worked alongside Karl Duldig and was his assistant in Karl’s later years. He teaches students using clay modelling methods favoured by Karl. This continues the heritage of teaching and creativity at the Duldig Studio, as an extension of our Artists’ Studio.

Please contact us for more information or to customise an education program.

Clay For Kids

Now in its 10th year, our program of clay workshops for upper primary school students, run by professional sculptor Stefan Damschke, has grown in popularity. As well as providing an art program meeting the requirements of the Victorian Curriculum, Clay For Kids offers activities of artistic excellence. During the holidays, Stefan offers Clay Masterclasses to small and supportive groups of talented students in a real artists' studio!
