Education outreach

During the period of closure our Education Officer Sietske Jansma will be visiting schools to take the Sarjeant Gallery collection and stories to the children of our community. Please contact Sietske by email or phone direct dial (06) 349 0543 ext. 3276 to make a booking and discuss what type of programme you would like.

We recommend you book in advance to ensure that you get the day and time that you want.


Programmes available


A session based on artworks from the Permanent Collection of more than 9000 items.

These programmes make use of works from the Sarjeant’s permanent collection and include a practical session. Resource kits are available for these sessions. Please book a week in advance if you wish to view collection works.


A session based on teacher requests.

Teachers ask for a new programme which is developed using the Gallery’s Permanent Collection and becomes part of the permanent programmes on offer. Requests from teachers in the past have been: Birds, New Zealand Flora and Fauna, Observational Drawing, Impressionism and Animals. Resource kits are available for these sessions.  Please book a week in advance if you wish to view collection works.
