Our Primary programmes are undergoing some changes which means that this programme will not be offered during Terms 1 and 2 2018.

Have us come to you! This outreach education programme explores a unique pair of artworks the Gallery has had commissioned – artworks made in suitcases! Produced by artists Ani O'Neill and Lonnie Hutchinson, these suitcases were created with the express purpose of being able to be taken out to schools.

Educators will help students explore and respond to one of these works, which deal with themes of identity, culture, travel, migration and displacement. Students will have the opportunity to respond to the art suitcases through their own art making. Each student will create a symbol representing their own identity, focusing the elements of shape and space whilst doing so.

More senior students will engage with incorporating principles such as harmony, tension and balance to create a more elaborate depiction of their own, and their classroom identity.

Age groups: Years 1–8
Minimum daily attendance: 20
Cost: $6
