Event Overview: The National Portrait Gallery invites you on a virtual tour where you can experience one of our fun, curriculum-focused learning programs as if you were here in our unique building.
In this Visual Arts program, suitable for primary audiences, 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 notice, 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 they can use in their own self-portrait.
ACAVAR113 Identify intended purposes and meanings of artworks using visual arts terminology to compare artworks and describe how they have used visual conventions to represent their ideas.
ACAVAM111 Use materials, techniques and processes to explore visual conventions when making artworks.
ACAVAM110 Explore ideas and artworks from different cultures and times, including artwork by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, to use as inspiration for their own representations.
