Abstract: 

This study aims to uncover the pedagogical potential of school art galleries in secondary schools through two qualitative, descriptive case studies. Drawing upon literature from art education, museum education and museology, this research tested the following assumptions: (i) that school art galleries are crucial to art education by offering students a physical space embedded with the codes and ritual so viewing and display, and (ii) the school art gallery programme encourages art discourse among students and enriches their understanding of art through regular interaction with artworks on display, an aspect that has been sorely neglected in the local schools which often favour a production-orientated syllabus. In addition, the research explore how the school art gallery as a site, influences the teaching and learning.
