Who better to create programs for young people, than young people?!
Here at the National Gallery, we work directly with you to co-create the events and workshops that you want to see. Our youth programs enable you to lead conversations about the art, ideas and issues that are important to young people, all the while connecting you with the national collection and each other.
From artistic teens to creative young adults pursuing a career in the arts, we offer a range of programs to help you get inspired and stay connected. From the National Gallery Youth Council to Summer Art Scholarships, this is a chance to be part of a thriving creative community.
Join us for free programs and activations inspired by the art and ideas that shape the National Gallery!

National Summer Art Scholarship
If you are in Year 11 and interested in art, you can be one of only sixteen students selected to spend a week over the summer holidays at the National Gallery in Canberra. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the Gallery’s dynamic environment, meet the arts professionals who work here and engage with the national collection up close.
If you are a student the Gallery has a range of programs and resources available to support your learning. From learning resources featuring creative activities and art making projects to on site and digital programs for school groups and opportunities for further research, there are plenty of ways to learn with art.
