This resource is designed to provide teachers with ideas to support students responding to and creating visual artworks that explore historical narratives, related to Australian and personal histories. Students and teachers will engage with the work of Melbourne-based artist Bern Emmerichs and explore her art making process.
The resource includes an exclusive interview with Bern in her studio where she shares how she develops her ideas and artistic techniques.
The activities are designed to both compliment the YOUR NGV Arts Access A is for Australia workshop and as an additional resource to further enrich units of study in the classroom.
The NGV gratefully acknowledges the Packer Family and Crown Resorts Foundations for their support of NGV learning resources.
