Target audience: all ages
The Arts Learning Festival is about bringing students together, and our Collaborate project embraces that idea.
It’s a student art exhibition, drawn from across school sectors, that highlights the use collaborative practice in art education in 2017.
Schools from metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria have become part of this unique collection, which represents students of ages, from diverse schools, who have used collaboration as a tool to extend their learning and create artwork together.
Contemporary education research describes collaboration as becoming increasingly important in building students capacity to work in teams, and also share their unique perspective and skills in a safe group environment.
This collection of artwork examines a range of ideas through different media and provides an insight into how students have worked through the arts to enhance their learning both, individually and as the member of a team.
The results have been amazing, as collaboration produces new, unexpected results.
Collaborate will be available for viewing during the Arts Learning Festival, and there will be schools talks twice a day from Wednesday 3 May to Friday 5 May.
The events are free but bookings are essential.
