Education

Learning with Art

Bermuda National Gallery education initiatives are designed to provide opportunities for creative and independent thinking through an exchange of ideas and art education. Students develop art appreciation, critical thinking skills and creative problem solving.

BNG endeavours to enrich the lives of all school children through free school tours, supplementary art classes, art camps and workshops, as well as at school presentations. For further information please contact education@bng.bm.
