ACTIVITY OUTLINE:

Celebrate the contributions, achievements and enduring strength of First Nations people represented in the National Portrait Collection. This program will use portraits to engage students with this year’s NAIDOC theme through the visual communication tool of art.  

The program will encourage students to look closely, respond to and create their own artworks. Students will:     

  • explore ideas and artworks of and by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to use as inspiration for their own representations 
  • use materials, techniques and processes to explore artwork-making conventions 
  • present artworks and describe how they have used visual cues to represent their ideas (please have drawing material/tools ready for each participant) 
  • identify intended purposes and meanings of artworks using visual arts terms to compare portraits 
  • participate in a body movement activity inspired by poses in First Nations portraits.
