Students celebrate the contributions of First Nations Elders in the National Portrait Gallery collection. In association with NAIDOC Portraits are used to encourage engagement in students, to build the knowledge and skills to look, respond and create.
This program will highlight the achievements of Elders, by telling the stories of their lives. We will examine what we notice about who they are – their identity through the visual communications of art.
- Explore ideas and artworks from different cultures and times, including artwork by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, to use as inspiration for their own representations.
- Present artworks and describe how they have used visual conventions to represent their ideas. Please have drawing material/tools ready for each participant!
