Put Yourself in the Picture – Visual Arts (Stage 2, Stage 3, Stage 4)
Experience one of our fun and interactive, curriculum-focused learning programs live from the National Portrait Gallery.
In this Visual Arts program, suitable for students of all ages, students explore a selection of contemporary and historical portraiture to see how the artists reveal the fascinating stories of their iconic Australian subjects. With the help of our expert Gallery learning staff, they’ll practice important visual and critical thinking skills to interpret and understand these techniques. Responding with a series of drawing activities, by the end of the session students will have a better understanding of how to look for meaning in art, and of the conventions of portraiture.
