Wednesday Tours: School Days at The Model

School Days at The Model take place on Wednesdays during term time. Schools are invited to participate in tours of both the Niland Collection and contemporary exhibitions throughout the season.

On-line education guides developed by The Model education team accompany the exhibitions and can be downloaded below. The education guides provide information on the artists and focus on themes which underpin the exhibitions. Gallery and classroom activities accompany each guide.

Double Vision: 11 Feb – 06 May 2012
Double Vision is an exhibition curated by young people (aged 15–20 years) from Sligo and Ballymena which brings together art works from the Niland Collection and the Mid Antrim Museum’s social history collection.
