Framing the past (Stage 3)

Live Event

History | Year 5 – Year 6

Experience one of our fun, curriculum-focused learning programs live from the National Portrait Gallery, specifically for classroom based learners.

IMAGE: Portrait of Captain James Cook RN
John Webber
oil on canvas (frame: 140.4 cm x 115.8 cm depth 9.5 cm, support: 114.3 cm x 89.7 cm)
Purchased by the Commonwealth Government with the generous assistance of Robert Oatley AO and John Schaeffer AO 2000



Portraits will be selected based on this program being close to World Oceans Day

In this history-focused program we will explore portraits as historical sources, investigating time, place, people and artists perspectives. Students respond with writing, drawing, and discussion all the while practicing important skills of visual analysis as they consider the historical value of art and portraiture.
