During Term 3, we will only be offering the studio-based component of this programme, which means that the educator-facilitated engagements with artworks on display will not be available.
To complement a studio visit, we encourage teachers to self-guide to look at works of art in the gallery spaces related to your themes – and will provide you with resources and suggested artworks for viewing, to assist you in doing so. The cost of participating in programming during this period will be significantly less expensive – $4 per student for our one hour, studio based programming.
Our thematic Foundation programmes give students the opportunity to build knowledge and skills across the curriculum through meaningful engagement with art.
Creative and critical thinking, and interpersonal skill development is encouraged through lively discussion and activity. Each programme includes two lessons: one in the Gallery spaces, exploring three to five artworks, and another in the Studio, making art in response to the programme theme.
Included with these programmes are free term-long teaching resources for Levels 1–2 or 3-4.
Portraiture and Identity
How do artists convey identity in artworks? Learn about how artists capture a variety of identities (such as national, cultural, personal) using a range of artistic techniques, both traditional and non-traditional. Explore ways to communicate your own identities through art making.
