Take your class to Blue Mountains Cultural Centre’s City Art Gallery or interactive World Heritage Exhibition: Into the Blue for a range of fun and educational activities!
Encourage your students to look and think in new ways. The skills, qualities and activities central to an artist’s practice are also essential ingredients for creative learning – creative and critical thinking, imagination, experimentation, collaboration, risk-taking and problem solving skills.

ABOVE IMAGE: Students explored concepts of movement through time; travel from one place to another; linking images from one space to another and location. Inspiration was taken from selected works from Arthur Boyd: An Active Witness – A Bundanon Trust Touring Exhibition. This workshop was led by the education staff from Bundanon Trust.
