Contemporary Art on the Road + Home
Contemporary Art on the Road + Home is a professional development program founded to bring artists, art educators and teachers together to exchange ideas, share creative experiences and explore contemporary art and culture. The program has been designed to introduce teachers to a range of hands-on, expertly designed strategies and resources for teaching contemporary art in their classroom.
The first part of the program consists of formal presentations by educators from Gertrude Contemporary, Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA) and Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA). A presentation and hands-on workshop by Gertrude Studio Artist Spiros Panigirakis will form the second part of the program. From the perspective of his art practice and his role as a tertiary art school educator, Panigirakis will explore different modes of critical practice that he employs in his exhibition-making. These will include his use of craft and design in the production of sculpture and site specificity.
This professional devlopment workshop is for Low-SES Schools only. If you are unsure if your school is within this category please call Siobhan Sloper, at Gertrude Contemporary on 03 9419 3406.
