This virtual artmaking lesson is for the students involved in The Arts Unit HOME Program

Reko Rennie is a Kamilaroi artist based in Melbourne whose works explore issues of Aboriginal identity within an urban environment.

His commanding works are largely biographical and combine the iconography of his Kamilaroi heritage with stylistic elements of graffiti and street art. This event gives students and teachers participating in the 2019 Home program the opportunity to work with a professional artist in the creation of a collaborative artwork in their own school. Information on the artist can be found on his website: http://rekorennie.com

HOME connects professional Aboriginal artists, students, and teachers with local regional galleries and the Art Gallery of NSW to explore cultural practice and art making. It is an expansive three-term program exploring Aboriginal and Torres Strait art and artmaking. The program includes professional development for teachers followed by the support to deliver a bespoke visual arts program for Stage 3 - 4 students culminating in an exhibition opportunity at your regional gallery. 

Information on how to be part of the HOME program can be found on The Arts Unit website: https://www.artsunit.nsw.edu.au/node/14336
