This expansive three term program involves professional development for teachers followed by the support to deliver a bespoke visual arts program for Stage 3 - 4 students culminating in an exhibition opportunity at your regional gallery.
During the program students will participate in visits to their local regional gallery to participate in an artmaking session and view artworks created by Aboriginal artists from the gallery's collection.
Students will join two virtual excursions one to the Art Gallery of NSW to meet the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Curators and learn more about artworks in the gallery. At the second virtual excursion students will guide teachers and students through an artmaking lesson developed by Jonathan Jones (Wiradjuri artist and curator).
Teachers will be supported through online resources and connections to visual arts expert educators from the Arts Unit as well as expert knowledge from curators at the AGNSW and regional galleries.
At the completion of the program students will exhibit their artmaking in their regional gallery alongside the works created by other students in the program.
