Schools can have a great day of art activities at the National Gallery of Victoria as part of the festival.
Your class can take part in a Visual Thinking Strategies routine, an inquiry-based teaching method, facilitated by educators at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston.
They can then join a Third Paradise art making workshop. In Australia for the first time, the Third Paradise was devised by Italian modern master Michelangelo Pistoletto, as part of his search for a sustainable future, where nature and humankind coexist in harmony.
In addition, students will also be involved in a tour activity at the gallery – all part of a day of art excitement for upper primary and lower secondary students.
The Festival Art Day Out program will run on Wednesday 3 May, Thursday 4 May and Friday 5 May.
You can register your class by emailing us, and we will get back in touch with details, such as cost, times etc.
