Our Collection

Fred Courtis, then Head of Art Education at the Bendigo Teachers' College, commenced this collection of Australian works of art in 1955.

Artists represented include Sir Arthur Streeton, Tom Roberts, Sir William Dargie and Leonard French.

The teaching collection was developed to foster a national identity through the appreciation, understanding and enjoyment of the visual arts.
