Students apply analytical skills to interpret Colonial and Indigenous narratives on the Federation of Australia as expressed in art. Comparing and contrasting the meanings and messages in each artwork, they build a more informed understanding of the impacts and effects of Federation in 1901 and beyond. Then, they apply their comprehension and perceptions in a creative project which depicts their interpretation of the effects of Federation.
