PLAN YOUR VISIT - Discover mythological narratives and stories of migration with new exhibition Land & Sea (2 March - 16 June 2024)

Bundanon

‘Starting’ art or any learning process requires inspiration, motivation and drive towards something… but what?  This experience will be a catalyst for moving learners through these questions.

This program is available to senior high school students (Stage 6) and responds to the NSW Visual Arts syllabus requirements for HSC Body of Work. This program of work can also be mapped to other state and territory syllabus requirements for major works required in qualifying year, and has been successfully adapted for use by other disciplines such as Extension English and textiles. Syllabus mapping available on request.

Students should bring their own laptop / device for viewing multimedia and research.

 

Learning intentions for program:

  • Explore and research a range of artists, artworks and artforms to inspire direction of the Body of Work (BOW)
  • Understand how creatives can be inspired by the practices of different artists
  • Experience processes for documentation and reflection to support development of the BOW
  • Students will experience art-making techniques chosen from a range of expressive forms
  • Students have an opportunity to explore, extend or reinforce their identity as artists

Activities List

 

Spark ideas (1 hour)

Learners explore and analyse artworks on display in the Art Museum. Consideration is given to the variety of artmaking practices, techniques utilised and colour, form and material themes evident. This art analysis will inform learners about their own artmaking in the connected suite of learning experiences.

 

Inspiration Room (2 hours)

How do your students generate ideas and directions for their body of work? The Inspiration Room is a space where learners can encounter artworks, analyse them, display them and consider how this might inspire their Body of Work.  The display will record artistic inspiration and note relationships between own and others’ artistic interests.

In addition to works experienced at the museum, Bundanon educators will provide a range of stimulus and encourage students to identify three works that they connect with. These selections will be interrogated to unveil artists and art movements referencing the agencies of the conceptual framework.

Students will critically consider how to find good sources of information about the art and artists that have struck their interest and build a visual display to be discussed as a group, as well as prompting individual reflection.  At all stages, reflective practice will be modelled and encouraged, positioning the visual arts diary as a critical tool for developing a body of work.

Students will take home inspiration, experiences and artefacts that offer an active pathway for commencing a body of work.  Students will need to bring visual arts diaries and a tablet or laptop for research.
