Every year schools across New South Wales are invited to participate in Operation Art, an initiative of The Children’s Hospital at Westmead in association with the New South Wales Department of Education. The Operation Art program provides a forum for schools and students to demonstrate their visual arts achievements through exhibitions at the Armory Gallery, Sydney Olympic Park and the Art Gallery of New South Wales.

Early Learning and Primary Education – Learning and teaching
Operation Art acknowledges the generous support of ANSTO [Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation] whose funding supports Operation Art's Touring Exhibitions.
This series of lessons take their inspiration from 20 artworks exhibited at the 2019 Operation Art Exhibition. The artworks have been created by students in Stages Early Stage 1 through to Stage 3 in the classroom. Each lesson contains syllabus outcomes and indicators directly linked to teaching and learning activities with suggestions for formative assessment. There are recommendations for artist studies and step by step instructions on how to create artworks in your classroom.
