National Portrait Gallery
The National Portrait Gallery is a cultural institution where students will discover a veritable roll call of remarkable Australians we are variously inspired, moved, perplexed and delighted by.
Focussed on learning through discussion, visual analysis, drawing and creative activities. The content is cross-curricular in nature, with a choice of focus areas on offer: Visual Art; History; English; Civics and Citizenship; and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Activism. We also offer Visual Thinking Strategies, a critical thinking and visual literacy program for all levels of education.
An interactive learning resource for use in the Gallery. Students compare and contrast portraits and collaboratively create a brief descriptive report with an iPad app.
Available in your own classroom via video conferencing. Fully interactive sessions with Gallery staff let you explore the National Portrait Gallery Collection in real-time learning programs aligned with the Australian Curriculum. Find out more at portrait.gov.au/ content/virtual-excursions.
