Student Operation Art Workshops

This year, for the first time, Operation Art and The Armory Gallery are very excited to be able to offer virtual art-making lessons to class groups of students in Stages 1 – 3 in schools across NSW!

Students will be taken on a virtual excursion as they enter The Armory Gallery through the eyes of the camera to view the 2020 Operation Art Exhibition, and then participate in an interactive art-making lesson with artist and teacher, Trevor McDonald.
