Connect to Art: Responding to Art Tours

These facilitated tours provide students with an overview of the museum, it's fascinating history and the artworks on display. Our aim is to empower students, giving them a positive museum experience so that they become lifelong enthusiasts, visitors and supporters of the arts.

They can be taken as stand-alone programs or in combination with a Making Art Tour & Workshop.

All programs can be adapted to suit different year levels.

WHAT IS SCULPTURE?

Our response to sculpture is coloured by its materials, form and type of display - the act of looking at sculpture is a dynamic activity. In this program, students view a range of three-dimensional artworks and examine their shapes, textures, materials, scale, and meanings to develop informed judgements.

Programs are adapted to suit different year levels
