The Tweed Regional Gallery offers a range of exciting student and educator focused learning opportunities via a diverse program of exhibitions, programs, resources and events that cater for pre-preparatory to tertiary levels.

The Gallery aims to support teachers' professional development through workshops, talks and learning opportunities. Exhibition preview events are held twice a year. These events offer a chance for teachers to get together in an informal and relaxed way, collect current Education Resources and preview selected exhibitions. The Gallery can provide documentation of teacher learning that supports the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
