The Ramsay Art Prize exhibition and learning program assists educators in supporting students’ exploration and understanding of, and engagement with, contemporary Australian art.

Opportunities exist for students and educators to connect with the Australian Curriculum: Visual Arts through the strands of ‘Responding’ and ‘Making’, by considering the cultural and historical contexts in which the works were created, connecting to Cross-curriculum priorities and General capability themes.

Learning opportunities offered through the program include:

  • Responding by using eyes, ears and imaginations
  • Discussing how and why works are made (and displayed)
  • Exploring varieties of techniques and materials
  • Sharing what is seen as an audience
