Learning With Art
The Bermuda National Gallery offers a variety of education programmes in conjunction with current exhibitions for learners of all ages.
The BNG Internship Programme provides paid opportunities for people aged 18 – 25 within the arts and culture sector as well as career development and training in all aspects of museum operations.
Children’s activity booklets to accompany current exhibitions are available at the front desk. Packs can also be downloaded (free) via the exhibition pages for those who wish to explore the gallery online.
The Bermuda National Gallery offers free art tours to all schools. These can be linked with the classroom curriculum to support class studies and projects as needed. All school visits must be booked in advance.
Youth Arts Council
The Youth Arts Council, aimed at ages 13 to 17, is a free programme which explores the topics of the day through the lens of art and art-making. Students meet artists and learn to creatively problem solve.
Art + Tech Lab
Using current exhibitions as a starting point, students focus on a variety of art making skills – from traditional techniques to digital technologies, often fusing the two together. Suitable for ages 11 to 14.
Early Years Programme
This programme introduces children ages 2 to 5 to the museum space. Classes are designed to encourage gross motor and cognitive skills and develop vocabulary through the use of art for story-telling.
BNG offers professional development training workshops to all teachers and community educators in partnership with the Bermuda Union of Teachers and the Bermuda Educators’ Council.
