Contemporary Art on the Road - Horsham Regional Gallery
Contemporary Art on the Road is a professional development program founded to bring artists, art educators and regional teachers together to exchange ideas, share creative experiences and explore contemporary art and culture. The program has been designed to introduce regional teachers to a range of hands-on, expertly designed strategies and resources for teaching contemporary art in their classroom.
The program consists of formal presentations by educators from Gertrude Contemporary, Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA), Horsham Regional Gallery and Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA). A presentation and hands on workshop by Gertrude Studio Artist Georgina Cue will form the second part of the program. Georgina will lead a workshop centred around set design and photography. Through combining painting and sculptural techniques with found materials, this workshop will explore the experimental possibilities of using large-scale sets as back-drops for photography and video. This will enable teachers to be able to freely experiment with using ad-hoc techniques of theatrical staging to create photographic imagery in their classroom.
