Year 12 Study Day: Art History and Conceptual Framework

Saturday 17 March | 9am – 1pm
This Saturday intensive (with snacks) will equip year 12 Visual Arts students with a working knowledge of key art history terms and concepts, as well as immediate applications of the conceptual framework.

Drawing on works and themes in current exhibitions, Lisa Reihana | Cinemania and Action and Consequence the program includes art history crash courses in colonialism, and the history of photography and video art, locating both historical and contemporary works from the gallery within these very big, very tangled narratives.

Students will also be supported to extend and apply their understanding of the conceptual framework, working in the gallery with ‘real live’ works. Developing skills and confidence to articulate their own responses as audience members, students will test, discuss and map inter-relationships and agencies of the conceptual framework.

This program is designed as a dynamic learning experience for keen visual arts students, using a mixture of group discussion and collaboration, in-person or ‘real world’ engagement with artworks, visual brainstorming as well as practice questions and take-home resources.

We’ll also give you chips :)

This is part of a targeted series for stage 6 visual arts students, with a final weekend intensive (unseen works) in term 3.
