Our approach is to make links between social history, artistic development and cultural values.

Students are encouraged to investigate questions of identity, explore themes of change and continuity, history and memory, social values and cultural development. Using an inquiry-based learning strategy students will discuss aspects of visual representation, composition, symbolic codes, and medium, by looking at portraits from a range of periods.

Programs can be tailored to cover a range of curriculum areas including the Arts, History, Literature, Studies of Society and the Environment and Technology.
