Are you looking for an introduction to examining visual media? Hook your students into exploring Federation and contemporary issues through cartooning!
In this free digital workshop, your students will discuss the techniques used by cartoonists, practice their visual analysis skills and learn about the role of political cartoons as an example of media in our democracy. Your students will become cartoonists and create a collaborative drawing with the MoAD Learning team, and develop their media literacy and critical thinking skills. They will design their own cartoon to investigate how they can have a say on issues that are important to them.
The workshop uses accessible cartoons from MoAD’s Behind the Lines exhibition and exclusive content from one of Australia’s leading cartoonists.
