Art of education
"The range of educational programs the Art Gallery of NSW offers provides a substantial educational role, which it seems the universities are not (''Universities are letting Australian art down'', March 24.)
The Art Gallery Society of NSW is in its second year of presenting a 33-lecture art historical course, Art and Australia., There are two lectures on each subject, which includes indigenous art.
The Thursday lunchtime lectures are sold out and the Wednesday evening ones well-subscribed. The lectures are given by gallery curators and, interestingly, academics from local and interstate universities. With the added bonus of being able to see the originals on its walls."
