Hand in hand, them and us, you and me – a session on friendships
(preschool to year 7)
This session is about friendships and communities. Art can tell about various types of communities. The good and the evil, the happy and sad, the great and the small. We ask questions such as: how do we look on ourselves and others? What does it mean to be part of a community? And what does it mean to be outside the community? In this workshop we work with collages and painting.
Fantasy (preschool to year 7)
Fantasy knows no boundaries in art. We look at angels and dragons, a man whose legs are far too long, incredible beauties and spooky creatures. In the workshop we paint or build our own imaginary worlds.
All about sculpture (preschool to year 7)
We go on a sculpture exploration through the collections and examine what a sculpture is able to do that a painting cannot. Naturally, in this workshop we create sculptures; the glue gun comes in handy here!
Image and sculpture analysis/experience
Across different periods and ‘isms’ we look at sculptures, paintings and installations. How do we analyse different media? We discuss elements such as motif, composition, perspective, colour, light and shadow, but we also address the more irrational aspects that arise in our encounter with art. In this workshop we begin with the works that we have seen, so students may create either sculpture or painting/collage.
My first Gallery visit (preschool to year 7)
In this session we consider the diversity in art – we’ll look at paintings, sculptures, installations and films, and discuss what we can use art for. In the subsequent workshop activity, we begin with one of the works that we have seen, and try our own skills with analogue art media.
Portraits (preschool to year 10)
Portraits may take on many different appearances. We’ll look at various portraits in the Gallery’s collections, both new and old. In this workshop the students will paint a self-portrait and decide how they will appear. For older students we will also be discussing identity and staging and ask questions such as: what is identity, and how can one depict or construct one’s own identity in a portrait?
