Education kits are available for some of our exhibitions to support school visits to the Gallery. The kits are designed to provide background information on the exhibitions, artists and different art forms. They can be used across a range of Education Stages.

Eugenia Lim: The Ambassador Education Kit

This resource offers suggested learning activities to help audiences engage with the practice of contemporary Australian artist Eugenia Lim. This resource will explore key ideas in Eugenia Lim's practice including:

• cultural identity

• migration and globalisation

• characters

• national and personal histories

 

While these activities have been written with late primary and early secondary students in mind, the concepts they address are intended to be accessible and adaptable to learners of all ages and abilities. Teachers are free to adapt these learning activities to suit their context and their students. That said, this section connects to the subject areas of Visual Arts and History (or HASS), with particular relevance to the Australian Curriculum cross-curriculum priority of Asia & Australia's engagement with Asia.

 

The activities contained in this resource are aimed to be used flexibly and may be undertaken before, during or after an exhibition visit. Teachers could also combine learning experiences to deliver a larger unit of work that has the potential to cover both Arts and HASS outcomes.

 

In this resource, you will find:

• Insight into the practice of Eugenia Lim

• A contextual timeline of Australia's engagement with China

• A glossary of terms

• A variety of discussion and making activities for use in the classroom, or the gallery.

• Links for further reading and exploration.
