Students will also develop knowledge and understanding of Australian Art making use of the relevant disciplines, experiences and understandings gained throughout this program.

After breakfast this morning, your guide will meet you at your hotel and escort you on your Walk to Art tour of Melbourne. Designed to encourage artistic development through discovery and exploration, Walk to Art allows students to understand art not through the commercial large gallery-style art displays, but through access to street art, public art, artist-run spaces and small galleries. Teachers and students absolutely love this view of Melbourne.
