What is gallery education?

Gallery education, also called gallery learning is a term used to refer to the visual arts and aims to widen awareness and access to the same. Galleries by extension are social spaces that facilitate and respond to the needs of a large group of people whether they be families, disabled people, elderly people or young people. The goal is to encourage learning and access to people who are either acquainted with the visual arts or are completely new. These areas provide visitors with informal education about different unknown areas of interest that will both provide them with knowledge and arouse imagination and fascination in them. To achieve this goal many galleries and art museums have created gallery art programmes with their own departments that employ artists, educators and community leaders. We’ll go into a little bit more detail on who the educators are in just a moment but before that, it is important to know that education does not need a specific place or classroom to enlighten young minds.

Gallery educators can be a lot of different kinds of people

  • Education professionals who use visual arts as a teaching tool
  • Creative catalysts who work with artists, curators and directly with the community to enable connections between artists and the general public.
  • Audience champions or people representing the interests of schools and the community in a gallery or the museum.
  • Advocates and project managers who make sure meaningful projects and programmes are being promoted and delivered on time. They also campaign for the arts and education policy.

Now that we know who these educators are we can move on towards why gallery education is important or rather what its advantages are. Gallery education can promote visual literacy by helping people develop the tools and experience needed to appreciate and understand art on a deeper level. Many of the visitors that walk into these galleries are unaware of art in any form and hence unable to appreciate its beauty. Such visitors are given the chance to explore enough information that will change their views on the same, unlock creativity and further encourage people to explore their creative potential and contribute to the industry. It can also bring about cultural empowerment by informing people about different cultures and building people’s confidence of artists, galleries and the culture around them. All in all, these galleries help widen the horizons of its visitors and are a culmination of different resources that will both enlighten them and encourage them to ask crucial questions.

 

The importance of taking children to the museum

Museums are centres filled with information designed to enlighten and educate the curious mind. Especially for children, museums introduce them to unknown worlds, spark their imagination and provide them with valuable learning experiences. Despite popular belief that museums only help fuel academic education, they, in fact, help broaden their horizons and provide knowledge regarding all spheres of life.
In this article have explored the importance of taking children to the museum

1: ENCOURAGES A LOVE OF HISTORY:
As the caretakers and guardians of history, museums offer children bigger connections and references to history than a traditional class. Taking your child to any museum, be it, a child museum, an art gallery of a science museum, each will play a huge role in impacting their historical knowledge and the innovation taking place before their eyes. Parents themselves don’t have to be ardent history lovers to take their kids to the museum. Reading out plagues to them, encouraging them to ask questions and holding their attention is more than enough.

2: PROVIDES AN EFFECTIVE WAY OF LEARNING:

As informal learning environments, museums are a culmination of resources that promote informal education which is a process by which individuals acquire values, knowledge, skills etc. that are not applicable to the only field but will aid them for a lifetime. A single visit to a museum near you will provide children with in-depth knowledge about different subjects that they can acquire slowly for museums let you stay as long as you want.


3: COMPARE AND CONTRAST:
  One of the biggest perks of visiting a museum is that since it is so packed with exhibits and information, it gives children the opportunity to analyse and compare between different exhibits and pinpoint what information is important. Being able to thus compare and contrast is crucial towards developing critical thinking skills in children.


4: ENCOURAGES QUESTIONS:

Museums are well enough equipped to awaken curiosity in young minds which in turn will lead to these children asking questions. Some of these questions may have immediate answers, some of them might need a great deal of thought to answer and some of them might not have any answers at all. No matter what they asked, all of these questions must be equally encouraged and children must be given the confidence to find the answers to them on their own.

5: MUSEUMS INSPIRE:
Museums have the ability to leave its visitors in awe of its grandeur and the amount of information it holds. They provide inspiration to young children via its resources including the planetarium that leaves them fascinated about the night sky and the solar system, the skeletons that keep them thinking about life before them, the artworks that arouse the creative mind etc. All in all, museums encourage children to dream, wonder and fantasise.
