On Wednesday 20 May students in Years 1 and 2 enjoyed a virtual excursion to the NGV. Our guides Amy and Lily lead us through ‘Marking Time’, an exhibition of indigenous art from ancient times through to the present day. We learned about the different materials, symbols and colours used in the artworks and considered the difference between indigenous and non-indigenous attitudes to our land and its resources. This very engaging experience was a great way to start our art unit on indigenous art, and has given us so much to talk about and think about as we continue our learning.
‘Marking Time’ can be viewed online through the NGV website and is well worth a visit.
