ART tour-guide extraordinaire Peggy Popart is about to unleash her unique style of artistic interpretation on students across the Northern Rivers following the success of her weekend kids' program last year.
From May, primary and secondary schools can take advantage of free tours and transport at the Lismore Regional Gallery courtesy of Arts NSW.
The tours give students and young people the opportunity to be able to enjoy, interpret and engage with art in a meaningful way.
Gallery director Brett Adlington said the program was the perfect way for the gallery to connect with schools.
"We've seen the success of Peggy's program on the weekends and it's such a fantastic model," he said.
Peggy's "close personal friend", learning officer Claudie Frock, said gallery staff had developed student worksheets and teachers' notes to enhance the experience.
"We give them a few key art-speak words and ideas, but it's also about letting them understand that art can be about how it moves them," she said.
Tours will take place on Thursdays and Fridays from May.
Interested schools can phone the Lismore Gallery on 6622 2209.
